Praying with Paul: 'Inner Conflict'

Thursday, January 28, 2021

Romans 7:1-20

Dear Father,

I have died to the world (and to the idea that I can be justified by keeping a set of rules) through the body of Christ that I might belong to Christ.

He was raised from the dead that I might belong to him and bear fruit in his name. Help me to bear fruit for you in the way I live. Let me serve you in the new life of the Spirit.

Give me strength to resist suggestions to do evil. For even though I want to do good, opportunities to do evil lie close at hand. Don't let my inner rebellion convince me to do the opposite of what you command.

In the name of Jesus resolve the conflicts of my life and give me a clear course to walk as I follow him. Amen.
