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.
Thank You Father that in Christ I am dead to the Law and alive in Christ. Thank You that I have been released from the Law, having died to that by which I was bound.. so that by Your grace I have been imputed with Your righteousness and may serve You in newness of the Spirit - to Him be all praise and glory, AMEN.
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.
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.
Lord I delight to do Your will. May I grow in grace and not submit to the enticements of the flesh - for in my inner being I delight in Your word of truth in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
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.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You for Your great plan of salvation, which is mine in Christ. Thank You that I do not have to justify myself nor do I have to sanctify myself, but that in all things it is Christ who enables and strengthens me. Help me to grow in grace and in understanding of how to live the Christian life to Your praise and glory - in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
