Dear Father, guarantor of freedom,
Help me to run well! Help me not to be hindered from obeying the truth! Don’t let me be persuaded by a viewpoint that is not from you, the God who called us to freedom in Jesus!
A little leaven leavens the whole lump! Help me keep out even a pinch of “slavery” type thinking and religiosity that worships human will.
For to preach circumcision (law-keeping as a means of justification), is to remove the stumbling block of the cross of Christ. Help me never to lose sight of the cross, the awful price Jesus paid for my freedom.
In the name of Jesus I ask you to preserve my faith in freedom and love. Amen.
