Prayer for Romans 7:18

“For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For the desire to do what is good is with me, but there is no ability to do it.”

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.
