Dear Father, righteous and holy God,Help me never to be tempted to live as worldly people live: futile in their thinking – darkened in their understanding – alienated from you because of the ignorance within them – hard-hearted and calloused -given over to licentiousness – greedy to practice every kind of uncleanness.I did not learn of a Christ like this! I learned of a righteous and holy Christ.Help me ever to aspire to live as your holy people live: clear and decisive in thought – illumined in their understanding – reconciled to you by knowing your Son – tender-hearted and supple – self-controlled – hungering and thirsting for righteousness.Help me to follow him just as I was taught in him – as the truth is in Jesus.In his precious name I pray. Amen.
