Prayer For Holy Living in This Fallen World

Loving Lord how I thank You that in Christ I have Your Holy Spirit living in me to live and work to Your praise and glory. Help me Lord to keep looking to Jesus – and to keep my mind on the things above, not on the things that are of this world system.

Help me I pray to look away from the things of the world and to pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, and to be numbered with those who call on the Lord with a pure and humble heart.

Help me to live my life in a manner that is pleasing to my God - in gentleness towards others and in reverence towards You.

Prevent me I pray from being squeezed into the world’s mould but rather may I be conformed more and more, into the image and likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ, and help me to keep my eyes fixed on Him, Who is the Author and Finisher of my faith and in Whose name I pray,

Amen
