Praying with Paul: 'My New Nature Made Alive'

Wednesday October 26th, 2016

Ephesians 4:17-21

Dear Father, righteous and holy God,

Help me never to be tempted to live as worldly people live: futile in their thinking - darkened in their understanding - alienated from you because of the ignorance within them - hard-hearted and calloused -given over to licentiousness - greedy to practice every kind of uncleanness.

I did not learn of a Christ like this! I learned of a righteous and holy Christ.

Help me ever to aspire to live as your holy people live: clear and decisive in thought - illumined in their understanding - reconciled to you by knowing your Son - tender-hearted and supple - self-controlled - hungering and thirsting for righteousness.

Help me to follow him just as I was taught in him - as the truth is in Jesus.

In his precious name I pray. Amen.
