Praying with Paul: 'A Slave to Righteousness'

Friday, January 26, 2024

Romans 6:12-18

Dear Father, Master of my life,

Help me to yield myself to you as one who has been brought from death to life. Help me yield my members to you as instruments of righteousness.

Let not sin reign in my body, making me obey its passions. Let sin have no dominion over me, since I am not under law but grace.

I praise you, God, that whereas I was once a slave of sin, I became obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which I have committed. Thank you for setting me free from sin that I might become a slave of righteousness.

In the name of Jesus I thank you for your wonderful grace and all your gifts. Amen.
