A Prayer For Changed Lives

“Father, we’re reminded through the writings of the Apostle Paul that our lives are observed by those who see us day in and day out.  What wondrous change comes into our lives as we surrender our hearts to You.  And yet we must be on guard so that we do not allow worthless idols to win our affections; otherwise the light of Your Son Jesus will be diminished in our hearts and in our witness.  We will be no different from the darkened world in which You delivered us from.  No person or object is of greater worth than that of Your Holy Spirit Who resides in our hearts and prompts us to lift our eyes toward our heavenly redemption that is drawing closer every hour.  Thank You for saving us from the coming wrath when Your judgment is poured out on those who do not believe.  In the name of Jesus we pray.  Amen.”
