Prayer for Philippians 3:18

“For I have often told you, and now say again with tears, that many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.”

Heavenly Father, how easy it is for the old sin nature to influence our thinking, and cause any one of us to become enemies of the cross, when through self-righteousness or pride we try to do things in our own strength, rather than dying to self and living our new life in Christ. Keep me from falling into the old, fleshly ways, and may I learn to walk in spirit and truth, to Your praise and glory. Prevent me from falling into any self-righteous or legalistic thinking, and keep me resting in Christ and submitted to the Holy Spirit of truth - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
