and to dust you shall return.
So now, we confess to THEE, O LORD:
Likewise, our MIND is a DOOR. We stop temptations to sin, derogatory thoughts, urges to rebel against rules --- domestic home rules, public ordinances, and GOD'S HOLY ways --- at the DOOR of our MIND.
But The LORD has given us a WATCH-DOG : His+ Word. It will keep the "stray dogs" of the world away from our MIND. Let us honor this Divine Protector well, and set it to WATCH OVER THE ENTRANCE.
Let us Listen to the Apostle's admonishments about what to DO with our MIND:
Heavenly FATHER, take my mind away from worldly concerns. YOU already know the things I have need of before I ask.
Your Word is TRUTH. Sanctify my mind, so that I agree with Your Word in thought and in purpose and in deed.
Grant me an understanding of Your Word so that I can replace my earth-bound thoughts with Your Word.
I ask to have the Mind of CHRIST, as promised, so that I may perfectly love YOU and worthily magnify Your Holy Name, through The LORD JESUS CHRIST.
