Prayer for Personal Accountability

Lord Jesus it says in Your Word, examine Yourself to see it you are in the faith – Lord I realise that this is not talking to unbelievers but to all of us who are Your children, in Christ Jesus. Lord help me to examine myself, and all that I am, and all that I am learning from You and Your word, so that I truly may say with conviction :-I know in Whom I have believed and am walking in the path on which He has placed me.

Keep me also from critical thoughts of others, and prevent me Lord, from having a spirit of control – or by pretending to hold others accountable to You when the beam in my own eye is greater than the speck that is in my brothers’ eyes.

Keep me humble before Your throng of grace and may I walk the way of the cross day be day - with the Spirit as my teacher and the Word of God washing me clean. Thank You for all my Christian friends and brothers and keep us all walking close to You in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name I pray,

“Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.”
(1 Corinthians 6:8)

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word and the truths that it contains. Keep me from all forms of sexual sins and perverted acts and attitudes, thoughts and imaginations. May the words of my mouth and the thought of my heart be pure in Your sight - so that my life is not only positionally holy but practically holy, in all I say and do - to the honour of Your name, AMEN.

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,”

Heavenly Father, thank You that I am washed clean in the blood of Christ, positioned in Him and set apart unto You. I pray that I may grow in grace, mature in the faith and walk in spirit and truth to Your praise and glory - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”

Source: Verse of the day for 1 Corinthians 6:11

Heavenly Father, thank You for the freedom I have in Christ and that He died to pay the price for all my sin. Thank You that I am not under any form of law but under grace, and that because Christ identified with my sin, I am identified with His perfect, righteousness, and have been declared blameless through faith in Him. Keep me from sin, I pray, and give me wisdom to recognise things that are permissible, but which are not expedient, and help me to live my life in a way that honours You. Thank You that in Christ, all things are lawful unto me, but I pray that I will not cause another to stumble or backslide in my own Christian life. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
(1 Corinthians 6:12)

A Deep Abiding with My Heavenly Vine

Dear Father, who art in heaven, thank You that YOU are my heavenly Husbandman and that You tend my life with such care and concern. Cleanse me and prune me and take away anything that you discover in me that does not glorify Your holy name.

Thank You Father that I am a heavenly branch that is united to my heavenly Vine, the lovely Lord Jesus Christ. May His life flow through mine as sap flows through the branch that is engrafted into its parent stem. Fill me with and inflow Your fullness so that I may live and move and grow and bear fruit as I abide more and more in You,


“But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.”
(1 Corinthians 6:17)

Purity Prayer - To Flee Fornication

Dear Lord God, I seek a true inner purity that only comes from You and I come to You, knowing that I stand unclean, impure and wretched before Your perfect throne of purity and truth. Lord I ask Your forgiveness for the way that I have not honoured You with my body – knowing that I have engaged in many impure acts and unchaste thoughts. I confess that I am unworthy to even kneel before Your perfect presence – and yet I now understand that Christ died to pay the price for all my sins and all my impurities. Thank You that by believing in Jesus, Who died to pay the price for all my sins, You have washed me clean from every dishonouring act. Thank You Father.

Help me Lord to flee fornication and all the accompanying evils that flow from illicit sexual relationships and unclean thoughts – knowing that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who dwells in me and lives within my heart. Help me to keep my outward actions and inner thoughts pure before Your eyes – whether I am in the public view or hid in a secret place, and away from the gaze of the world’s eye.

Purify the eyes of my heart and help me to keep the focus of my mind on the Lord Jesus - and develop in me I pray, thoughts, words, deeds and motives that are pure in Your sight and that will honour Your Holy name, in Jesus name I pray,


“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.”
(1 Corinthians 6:18)

Your Kind of Vessel

Lord, give me the purity, integrity and focus to be the kind of vessel You would desire.



“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”

Dear heavenly Father, thank You that You not only created me but have purchased me as Your own precious possession. Thank You for dying for me and for shedding Your life blood to purchase me back from the slave market of sin. Thank You that I have been placed into the kingdom of Your only begotten Son by grace through faith in Him. I pray that I may glorify You in body, soul and spirit from this day forward - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN

“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.”
