Praying with Paul: 'Alive to Righteousness'

Galatians 2:11-21

Dear Father,

Help us understand that in Christ we are dead to law; we have been crucified with Christ so that we might live unto you.

Let Christ live within me. Let the life that I now live in the flesh be a life that I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Don't ever let me believe anything, espouse anything, do anything that might nullify your grace or imply that Christ died in vain.

Let me today, this day, and every day of my life, live from the power of Christ, live by the example of Christ, and live for the glory of Christ.

In the name of Christ I pray. Amen.
