Prayer for Colossians 2:20

“If you died with Christ to the elemental forces of this world, why do you live as if you still belonged to the world? Why do you submit to regulations:”

Heavenly Father, help me to reject the basic principles and religious practises of the world, that are so strong in the heart of fallen man. Thank You for reminding me, once again, that by faith I died with Christ and my life is hid with Christ, in God. May I never forget that I am no longer part of this fallen world system, but a citizen of heaven and identified with Christ's righteousness. Keep me from being influenced by the elementary principles and practices of this fallen world and may I live in a way that demonstrates that I am part of the new creation in Christ, and one with Him, in thought, word and deed. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
