Prayer For The Church To Be Sanctified

Father, we pray that as members of the body of Christ, we may learn to be imitators of You and to walk in love with one another, just as the Lord Jesus Christ loved us and gave Himself as an offering and sweet-smelling sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God.

Thank You, Father, that in Christ we are children of the light. May we walk in the light of the Lord, Who is the Way, the Truth, the Light and the Life. And Lord, we know that Your purpose for the Church is to transform each one into the likeness of the Lord Jesus, until He is all in all.

We pray that as members of His Body, we may walk in all goodness and righteousness and live lives that are honoring to You. Teach us we pray, to do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight, and we ask that every member of the body of Christ may be sanctified, set apart unto You and cleansed with the washing of the water of the Word of God, and made holy in thought word and deed.

We pray that the Church may be purified by the Spirit of power, so that she may be without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and blameless before You in love. We ask this in Jesus' name,
