Praying with Paul: 'Free from Sin'

Tuesday, January 25, 2022

Romans 6:6-11

Dear Father, in whom I am alive,

Thank you that my old self was crucified with Christ so that my sinful body might be destroyed, and that I might no longer be a slave to sin. Thank you for freeing me from sin through my dying with Jesus.

Death can never touch Jesus again. He lives his life unto you. Likewise help me to consider myself dead to sin and alive to you in him!

Help me to believe, and live out the fact, that sin and death can never touch me either, since I joined Jesus in his dying through my baptism into him.

In Jesus' name. Amen.
