Colossians 2:20-3:2

Dear Father,

Help me to realize that I have died and have been resurrected with Christ. Break the attachments of my old life and its bondage.

Don't let me live as if life were a matter of keeping regulations - don't touch, don't taste, don't handle - but let me live out of a deep sense of love and loyalty to my Savior.

Don't let me grasp for that which has merely an appearance of wisdom and which might make a show of religiosity but not really do anything to separate me from the pride and lusts of my fleshly nature.

Rather let me seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at your right hand. Let me set my mind on the things that are above, not on things that are on the earth.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
