Praying with Paul: 'Adopted'

Galatians 4:1-7

Dear Father,

Thank you for delivering us from slavery and immaturity. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ at just the right time, in just the right way, that he might redeem those under the law, and that we might all receive the adoption as sons.

Thank you for sending the Spirit of your Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father," so that we are no longer slaves but sons.

In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
