Child of God ~ Prayer

I praise you, Father, for by the blood of Your Son shed for me on the cross at Calvary, I am a child of God, forever; I am free to do good and not evil—to follow the path that leads to justice, righteousness, and abundant life; I am filled with Your Holy Spirit to use my gifts for Your glory by enjoying You now and forever! I humble myself.

  • I ask You for a double portion of grace.
  • ‘I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!’ (Mk 9:24)
  • ‘Don’t let me yield to temptation, but rescue me from the evil one’ (Mt 6:13).
  • Give me wisdom beyond my years and take control of my mind and heart, O God!
  • Help me to practice the fruit of the Spirit of ‘love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control’ (Gal 5:22-23) as Christ did on earth.
  • ‘Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you and lead me along the path of everlasting life’ (Ps 139:23-24).

I praise You, Father, for I have been born again and am no longer a slave to sin, fear, or the devil. I love only what is good and hate all that is evil. I draw close to You and I trust You with my life. Forgive me my sins and clear my conscience of evil and darkness. Empower me, O God, to become more like Jesus, humbling myself, forgiving those who sin against me, and loving my enemies just as You have forgiven me all my sins and have loved me.
