Praying with Paul: 'A Living Sacrifice'

Wednesday, February 16, 2022

Romans 12:1-2

Dear Father, all worthy God,

I present my body to you, O Lord, as a living sacrifice. May it be holy and pleasing to you.

Let this be my spiritual act of worship, not done at set times of remembrance, but constantly, moment by moment, day by day, night by night.

Let me not be conformed any longer to the pattern of this world, which is doomed to pass away. Instead, let me be transformed by the renewing of my mind, so that I may be able to test and approve what your holy will for me is - what is good, pleasing, and perfect.

By the authority of Jesus and in his name I ask for this growth in grace. Amen.
