Purity Prayer To Reflect The Love of God

Thank You Father God that I have been made clean through the blood of my Saviour Jesus Christ. Thank You that my sins have been washed away forever, and I pray that as I live the Christian life I may be continuously cleansed through the washing of the Word of God – for Your Word is pure and wholesome – Your Word is light and life.. Sanctify me by Your Word of grace I pray.

Help me to look deeply into Your Word of truth, knowing that the more that I am washed and cleansed by the written Word of God, the more I will come to see the lovely face of the living Word of God- my beautiful Saviour - Jesus Christ my Lord

I pray that my heart and mind may be purified daily but the cleansing flood that comes from You and I pray that rivers of living water may flow from You through me to others – so that I may reflect the love of God in my life and point others to Christ. May the face of Jesus my Saviour be the only thing that others see in me – for I must decrease so that He may increase – I ask this in Jesus name
