Abba (יהוה YAHWEH); have pity upon me according to Your Unfailing Love. I humbly confess to You, that I have often failed to guard the Gateway of my mind and my thinking

I have not always been kept in perfect peace, because my mind has not always been fixed upon יהוה, as it should have been, (Isaiah 26:3). 

I have often times allowed too much of the sinful world and its ungodly philosophies to influence my mind and my thinking; when I should have been submitting to You, and allowing You to transform my mind, to bring my mind into agreement with the mindset of Messiah, and Your Instructions (Romans 12:1-2; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 2:8; Psalm 1:1-3). 

Too often I have allowed my mind to worry, to fret and to be anxious instead of praying, (Philip. 4:6-7). 

Too often I’ve had my mind focused on earthly things instead of heavenly things where יהוה and Messiah are located., (Colossians 3:1-4). 

Too often I have allowed the desire for wealth and the cares and concerns of this life to choke out the seed of Your Word from my mind and from my heart, instead of focusing on what REALLY eternally matters, (Luke 8:14). 

Too often I have allowed my own desires for pleasure and entertainment to draw my mind and attention away from You, and from what is most important, (Luke 21:34; 1 Corinthians 15:34). 

Too often I have allowed my own fears and negativity to control my thinking, instead of exercising self-control over my mind, (1 Peter 1:13-16; 1 Corinthians 15:34). 

Too often I have failed to discipline my mind (1 Timothy 4:7). I have allowed too much of my flesh, the sinful world, the adversary, and other ungodly influences to control my mind and my thinking, which made it harder for me to believe and to obey You.  Abba יהוה. Please forgive me, save me, deliver me, and set me free. 

Have mercy upon me, and give me grace to earnestly repent and to more diligently guard the Gateway of my mind.  

Please help me to earnestly and to purposely direct my mind to think and to meditate on whatever is true, (Torah), whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, help me to purposely choose to think about these things.” (Philippians 4:8; Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Psalm 1:1-3; Psalm 119:142; Psalm 119:151; Psalm 119:160; Joshua 1:7-8; John 17:17).
