Judges 13:19-20 English Standard Version (ESV)
19 So Manoah took the young goat with the grain offering, and offered it on the rock to the Lord, to the one who works wonders, and Manoah and his wife were watching. 20 And when the flame went up toward heaven from the altar, the angel of the Lord went up in the flame of the altar. Now Manoah and his wife were watching, and they fell on their faces to the ground.
– Lord, when You do wonderful things in my life, don’t let me stand amazed and do nothing. Remind me of Your wonderful works so I will bow in surrender to Your will today.

Colossians 2:8-10 English Standard Version (ESV)
8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.– Lord, don’t let me be deceived by any thinking that is based on tradition or the way the world views things, but shape my thinking according to Your thinking as revealed fully in Christ, who fills me up.
