This post includes an encouraging prayer for discipline.
If you’re looking for a prayer for self control and discipline, this post has you covered! Discipline is a key characteristic we all need in life in order to grow and live out our full potential God has called us to.
The Lord has very specific purposes for you (yes, you!) in this life and, if you choose discipline, He can better use you as an instrument to live out those purposes!
Personally, I’ve struggled with discipline myself in the past and I’ve seen God work and bring me the discipline I needed through prayer!
The prayer for self discipline below is here to help guide you as you seek the Lord’s help in this area. Feel free to pray it verbatim or use it to come up with your own words.
I hope you’re encouraged by this prayer for discipline.
A Short Prayer for Discipline
Dear Heavenly Father,
I ask You to fill me with the self-discipline to stay on track with ___________. I need your Holy Spirit to remind me of why I started this in the first place, and give me the desire to stick with it and not give up.
I want to be a good steward of my body, my time, and my resources… All gifts from You!
I ask forgiveness for the times I haven’t chosen discipline, and I thank You and praise You for all You’ve given me!
Help me to control my flesh in the hard moments when I’d rather choose the easy way out over choosing discipline. In those moments, remind me of the reward on the other side of my discipline.
I cannot do this without You, and I need Your help. Thank You for being with me and I receive Your discipline into my life and heart right now!
In Jesus’ name,
