Praying through 1 John 5:18

Heavenly Father, what a wonderful truth that because I am in Christ, I have received His sinless nature.

Help me to keep my old sin nature in that place of death so that my new life may be a witness of Your goodness and grace. To You be all the praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

Thank You, Heavenly Father, that in Christ we are distinct from the satanically controlled world system that is under the power of Satan, because we are part of the new creation in Christ and have received His perfect resurrected life within us. Keep me from succumbing to the fleshly desires of this fallen world system. Thank You that my eternal salvation and position in this world depends on my relationship with Jesus and that in Him I have been freed from the power of sin and Satan. I pray that many who have not yet trusted Christ for salvation will be saved by grace through coming to faith in Him - and use me I pray, to be a witness to the gospel of truth.
