Dear Lord Jesus, I thank You for my life and for becoming my Saviour. Words cannot describe how thankful I am to know that You were made sin for me so that I might become the righteousness of God in You. Although I know that this is true it is hard to understand what I must have cost You in pain and suffering - but I praise and glorify Your name for I have been accepted in Christ and clothed in His righteousness – and I want to live my life as You intended man to live.
I pray that I may be given the grace to live my life in total dependence upon You, to walk in spirit and truth and to submit my will to You. Help me to cast all my care on You and not to try to sort things out in my own strength. Help me to walk as unto the Lord and to present my life as a living and holy sacrifice to You.
I pray that Your thoughts and desires would become mine so that I may be given the grace to pray into Your will and to do only those things that are pleasing to You.
I pray that I may be given the grace to die to self daily and to life to Christ – so that whatever I do and whatever I say may be filtered through Your love and grace. This I ask in Jesus name -
