Praying with Paul: 'Extinguishing Evil'

Thursday, December 22, 2022

Colossians 3:5-17

Dear Father,

Help me put to death certain things in my life that are earthly - inward evils ranging from impurity to covetousness.

Most of all, may I be rid of covetousness, wanting the applause and possessions of this world, which is really idolatry.

May I extinguish all outward evil ranging from anger to slander and foul talk.

Keep me from everything that is false. Don't let a lie come to my mind or my lips.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.
