Prayer for 1 John 5:18

“We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the One who is born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.”

Heavenly Father, what a wonderful truth.. that because I am in Christ, I have received His sinless nature. I pray that I may keep my old, carnal, sinful self in the place of death, so that the life I now live in this body, may be lived through my new, sinless nature - by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me. 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.
