Praying with Paul: 'Holy and Blameless'

Ephesians 1:3-4

Dear Father, King of an eternal kingdom,

Thank you for giving me the greatest motivation in life. You have called me into your kingdom, the greatest blessing that can come to any creature in heaven or on earth, in ages past, the present, or time to come.

Blessed are you, O God, Creator of everything that is.

You have blessed us with every blessing of a spiritual nature in the heavenly realms.

In fact, you chose us in Christ before you created the world, that we should be specially dedicated to you, holy and blameless. Continue your work in me, O Lord. Make me holy and blameless in word and in deed.

In the name of Jesus and by his authority I pray. Amen.
