Prayer For An Obedient Heart

Father, we are not of this world system but have a heavenly inheritance, reserved for us in heaven, and so I pray that I will not longer be conformed into the pattern of this world and squeezed into its mould, but day be day be increasingly transformed into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Help me to take every thought captive and to surrender my heart and life to You in true obedience and godly humility. May we who are Your children be drawn closer to each other and to You as You do a good work in each of our lives. Build us up into a spiritual house I pray, where Christ is the cornerstone and may Your indwelling Holy Spirit, prompt and guide us, encourage and train us.

Lord, I surrender all I am to You today and pray that I may walk in newness of love and humble obedience all the days of my life. In Jesus' name I pray,
