Heavenly Father, thank You that I have been united with Christ by faith and that because of that union with Him.. I have died to sin and am dead to the curse of the Law. Thank You that Christ rose from the dead to give me His life, so that as I abide in Him and He in me I may bear much fruit to the glory of God - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.”

Thank You Father that in Christ I am dead to the Law and alive in Christ.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the carefully structured book of Romans that so systematically sets out the sinfulness of man and Your gracious gift of salvation - which is ours through Jesus Christ our Lord. Thank You for the showing me that the Law brings with it a knowledge of sin which points us all to Christ - the one and only Sacrifice for sin. Keep my heart pure before You, I pray and identify all the evils in my life that dishonour Your name. Thank You for Paul's clear teaching that the Law is the tool to draw us to Yourself. Examine my heart and see if there is any sinful covetousness within, and wash me clean I pray, this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.”
(Romans 7:7)

Heavenly Father, how I thank You for the book of Romans and the truths it contains about our changed relationship to the Law, after we have been justified by faith, identified with Christ and positioned in Him. Thank You that in Him I am not under the Law but under grace. Thank You that the penalty for my sin has been paid and the power of sin in my life has been broken - and it is ALL by grace through faith in Christ Jesus my Saviour. How I praise You that I am part of a new creation. Help me keep my sinful nature nailed to the cross, for in me there is no good thing. But thank You that You started a good work in me, and will complete it on the day of Christ. May my life and witness be honouring to You in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.”

Heavenly Father, keep me ever mindful of the truth that there is an internal war that is seeking to draw me back into my former fleshly ways. Thanks be to God, Who delivers me from this inner conflict, through Jesus Christ our Lord! AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful truths that are contained in Your word. Thank You that although there is nothing that I can do to gain Your approval I am accepted in the Beloved. Thank You that my salvation was completed by Christ on the cross, Who died from me and rose again.. to pay the penalty for my sin, and to break the powers of sin in my life. I pray that I may live to Your praise and glory until I can say; it is not I that lives but Christ, Who lives in me. Thank You Father, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?”

Prayer For Those Addicted To Drugs

Oh Lord, I come to You to pray for all who are weighed down with some form of addition. Lord, You are the One Who came to set the captives free and to release the sinners from the chains that bind them – so I lift before Your throne of grace all those that have become addicted to drugs.

Lord I know some personally and others that I know nothing about – but You know everyone that is enchained by the curse of drug-addiction. Look with compassion on all that are ensnared by any form of addiction and send help and freedom to all who would accept help. Lord I pray so that they may be released from this imprisonment and returned to a life that has dignity and meaning.

Give wisdom to their family members and those that care from them that they may be given the support and help to put them back on the road to recovery. Endow them with patience, understanding and perseverance, knowing that this can take time to address.

More than anything Lord I pray for their Salvation. You died for every drug addict and it was Your love for them that caused You to die on the cross of shame that they might be lifted up and seated with Christ in heavenly places…

“I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.”
(Romans 7:25)
