Be Careful to Obey All These Words That I Command You

The purposes of this prayer are: Obedience and Glorify God/Worship.

Holy God, Moses relayed your instructions on how to properly worship you to the assembled Israelites, saying, “Be careful to obey all these words that I command you, that it may go well with you and with your children after you forever, when you do what is good and right in the sight of the Lord your God. When the Lord your God cuts off before you the nations whom you go in to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land, take care that you be not ensnared to follow them, after they have been destroyed before you, and that you do not inquire about their gods, saying, ‘How did these nations serve their gods?- that I also may do the same.’ You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way, for every abominable thing that the Lord hates they have done for their gods, for they even burn their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods. Everything that I command you, you shall be careful to do. You shall not add to it or take from it.” Deuteronomy 12:28–32 (ESV). Heavenly Father, these commands apply to all who worship you. Christians worship you by obeying all of Jesus’ commandments, beginning with loving you with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and loving our neighbor as ourselves. Help us, we pray, to be diligent in living our lives within your will. We ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
