Heavenly Father, thank You that Christ was not only my substitute for sin, by taking the punishment that I justly deserve, but that He also died as my representative. He identified so intimately with me that His death became my death and His glorious resurrection-life became my new-life in Christ. Thank You that I am a new creation in Christ and positioned in Him through time and into eternity. I pray that the life I now live may be lived by faith in the Son of God Who loves me and gave Himself for me - so that His life may be lived through me to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Thank you, Father, that Christ not only died for my sins so that my sins are forgiven, but He died unto sin so that the old sin nature does not have power over me, as I trust my life into His hands. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus dying on the Cross so that I may be forgiven of my sins. Thank You for identifying with my unrighteousness so that I may be identified with Your righteousness. And thank You for identifying with my death so that I may be identified with Your life, my new life in Christ. Help me to keep all that is not of You nailed to the Cross, and I pray that I may live godly in Christ Jesus, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You with my whole being that I was baptised into the body of Christ when I was born into the family of God. Thank You for the wonderful opportunity to declare my new-found faith in Christ and my new life in Him, by going down into the waters of baptism as an outward sign of death, and coming up out of the waters as an outward sign of the inward change that took place in me at my rebirth.
I pray that as I prepare my heart to be baptised, that my baptism may be a true outward declaration to the world of my inwards change of heart and status in Christ, Who lifted me out of the miry clay and has seated me together with Christ in heavenly places.
Lord, may my water baptism truly demonstrate to the world the beautiful spiritual baptism that took place the moment I first believed, when I trusted Christ as Saviour and was born again by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I pray that going down into the baptismal waters may demonstrate to all that I have been crucified in Christ and died to the old life with Him on the cross. And may this water baptism demonstrate to all concerned that I have risen-up into newness of life in Christ Jesus my Lord.
Praise You Holy name! In Jesus name I pray,
Loving Father, thank You that I am united with Christ in the likeness of His death, and that His life has become my life – through time and into eternity. Thank You for directing my life every step of the way, as I follow you. Guide me today and direct my heart and mind into the love of Christ, and draw me into a closer intimacy with Yourself. I trust You to do all things well, and I praise You for Your goodness and grace. In the name of Jesus, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, please open my understanding more and more to the wonderful truths that are contained in this astonishing verse of Scripture. Thank You that my old sin nature was crucified with Christ. Thank You that because Christ is my representative, my 'old Adamic self' was crucified with Him so that I no longer need to be a slave to sin, but am set free to live holy as unto the Lord. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, Thank You that Christ died for my sin so that I might be justified by faith in His finished work at Calvary for the forgiveness of sins.. and thank You that Christ also died UNTO sin so that the power of sin in my life can be broken in my life. I pray that I may reckon on this truth and discover it to be a reality in my own Christian walk - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for dying for me so that I might be identified - not only with Your death but also with Your resurrection and the eternal life that it guarantees. May I live my life to Your honour and glory. Thank You that the power of sin has been broken in me - through Christ. May this become an increasing reality to me as I keep my old man nailed to the cross - so that my new life in Christ may grow in grace and in a knowledge of Him.. until it is not I that live but Christ that lives in me - to His praise and glory, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that Christ Jesus identified with my sin and took the death sentence that I deserved and thank You that by faith in Him I am identified with His eternal resurrected life. To Him be all praise and glory, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You that You identified with my sinfulness so that I might be identified with Your righteousness. Thank You that You not only died for my sin but You died unto sin - so that I might be empowered to live my life in spirit and truth.. as I abide in Christ and He in me. I pray that I would not only hear this truth but act upon it and reckon my old sinful self to be dead to sin and my new life in Christ to be alive in God through Jesus Christ my Lord. AMEN.
Loving Father, I have read this passage many times, and I ask You to help me to see more clearly what it means to reckon myself to be dead to the power of sin and alive to You in Christ, for I want to live a victorious life in Him, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that at salvation I was positioned in Christ and received a new life in Him. Thank You that at justification I became a new creation and a member of Christ's Body. I pray my new life in Christ may grow in grace and that my faith in the truth of Your Word may be put into action - so that I not only believe Your Word but am ready and willing to act upon it, moment by moment, to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Father, thank You that Christ not only died for my sins but has died unto sin so that the power of sin no longer has power over me. Help me to make the right choice to follow you and listen to Your voice day by day. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I confess that I have not only hurt other people, and especially those that are close to me, but I have offended You and ignored some of the warnings that I believe were directly or indirectly sent from You. Help me I pray to break free of this ungodly addiction and get on the road to recovery.
Forgive me Lord, for I have sinned against You and ignored the clear teaching of Your Word to live soberly, righteously and in the fear of the Lord and to walk circumspectly before You, as a child of the light. But I come to You in humble submission to ask You to help me to get on the road to addiction recovery, for I know that You have promised to lift-up all who come to You out of the miry pit, even when we have foolishly dug it for ourselves.
Help me be set free from alcohol, putting on the breastplate of righteousness, and for the helmet of salvation in Christ, in Whose name I pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You for saving me and for the many lives that have been saved by grace through faith in Christ. May the inflow of truth from Your word produce an outflow of godliness and grace, as we submit to the Holy Spirit - so that we may grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in Whose name we pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I have been freed from slavery to sin and become a servant of righteousness. Help me day by day to make the righteous choices in my life that keeps self nailed to the cross so that my life my be lived in willing obedience.. as I seek to do Your will to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Loving Father, in You is life, and light, and health, and truth. Thank You that I am Your child, and I pray that I may be a servant of righteousness, who honours You in thought, word, and deed. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that while I was still a sinner and entrapped in the dark kingdom of Satan, Jesus died for me, and that by grace through faith in Him, I have been removed from sin's terrible enslavement, saved from Satan's dark kingdom, and brought into the kingdom of Your dear Son, Jesus Christ, my God and Saviour. Thank You that He not only died to pay the price of my sin, but that He died to break the power of sin in my life - and how I thank You that His grace is sufficient for every eventuality in life that I may have to face. Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.

I pray that in Him I may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus day by day, in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, I am a sinner and deserving of eternal death and the lake of fire. I am not worthy to set my foot in Your heavenly home.

Thank You for Your indescribable gift. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
