You are the source of all wisdom and strength. I come before You today, humbly asking for the discipline to grow spiritually. Help me to prioritize my time and energy in ways that align with Your will for my life. Grant me the self-control to resist temptation and the perseverance to continue in my spiritual practices, even when it is difficult. Guide me in developing habits that will lead me closer to You and help me to grow in my faith.

Lord, I know that discipline is not always easy, but I trust that with Your help, I can overcome any obstacles in my path. Help me to be diligent in seeking You through prayer, reading Your Word, and serving others. Give me the strength to resist the distractions and temptations that pull me away from Your purpose for my life. I pray for the ability to stay focused on the path You have set before me and to grow in my relationship with You.

I thank You, Lord, for Your faithfulness and for hearing my prayer. I know that with Your guidance and discipline, I can continue to grow in my spiritual walk and become the person You have called me to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
