Exodus 20:2-17 (aka The 10 Commandments)
Dear Father,
Thank you for coming into my life and washing away any anxiety that I may experience. I come to you this morning to ask for prayer for an important person in my life. They are asking for you to come in to their lives, but for the wrong reason. They seek answers from you for negative statements and ideas that were brainwashed into them from feng shui teachers and astrologist. When you gave Moses the 10 Commandments, the first you gave was “You shall have no other gods before Me.” Sometimes this is a hard statement for me to grasp as well. The other day I updated the devos page to talk about how I believe we’re on a path YOU have created for us. We still have choice, but irregardless of what we decide, ultimately, you have weighed out the consequences already and YOU are there for us no matter what we choose. Often times, I catch myself saying, “Instant Karma” when I trip and fall, right after I gossip about someone. I shouldn’t call it Karma, since I would be believing in an Indian religion/way of life (not knocking it t. I should really just think of it as YOU waving your finger towards my shoe and making it grip the pavement ever so slightly harder in that exact spot, causing me to fall. LOL.
Anyway, I pray this person will drop the other gods and come directly to you. Maybe them going to those people was a good thing? It’s hard to break old cultural rituals when trying to understand the Truth and the Gift of Life. When people break or on the verge of breaking, they come to you. Hopefully this time when they come to you they will fully understand your sacrifice and devote their lives to You. I pray this because they mean a lot to me. In Jesus’ name! Amen!!

Love you!
-Lee
