Praying with Paul: 'Yielded to Righteousness'

Friday, January 27, 2023

Romans 6:19-23

Dear Father, Master of my life,

As I once yielded my members to impurity and greater and greater iniquity, so now I yield them to you for righteousness and sanctification.

Thank you for setting me free from sin and making me your slave, your rich slave, because the return I get is sanctification and its result, eternal life.

Thank you for your free gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus, my Lord.

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