Praying with Paul: 'The Deeds of the Flesh'

Thursday, July 8, 2021

Galatians 5:19-21

Dear Father, opposer of all that is evil,

Help me to stay away from those things which are clearly works of the flesh: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like.

Help me heed your warning, given again and again, that people who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

In the name of Jesus I ask you to perfect us, whatever that may take, and give us the grace to endure your renovation process. Amen.
