1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

Dear Father, all worthy God,

Please give me the mind of Christ so that my body may be a temple of the spirit of holiness which is his.

May you yourself, O Father, make me holy through and through. May my whole spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless by your power at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I trust you to do this because you are the one who has called me, and you are faithful. Your word says that you will do it!

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