A Prayer For Holy Living

“Father, we desire to clothe ourselves in Christ Jesus, whose Spirit resides within our hearts.  We pray that our behavior would honor You as we seek to behave decently and live according to the pattern of Holy Scripture, for “we were taught, regarding our former way of life, to put off our old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of our minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”  Make us like You, Father, as we follow after You in righteousness and holiness.  In the name of Jesus we pray.  Amen.”
