Saturday Prayer 13

As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: ‘be holy, because I am holy.’ (1 Peter 1:14-16, NIV)

Lord, please help me to walk in the ways of holiness as a reflection of who You are. Conform my desires to Your truth, and dispel the mirage of ignorant desires. May my words come from a holy mind and heart. May my actions come from a holy mind and heart. ay my interior life be overcome and strengthened by Your holy presence.

Lord, in the times of faltering, call me back to the truth. Lead me through the pathways of confession and repentance that open into the roadway of obedience. Even as You purify me within, let my steps of obedience purify me outwardly that I might receive and reflect the light of Your holy presence.

[This is part of a series of prayer posts in 2012 that began here.]

Discussion Questions

  1. Who is someone you have encountered who really seemed to know God? What was it about them that would make you describe them in that way?
  2. Today, we are looking at 1 John 2:3-11. Take some time to mark or write down recurring words or phrases that you encounter in this passage. Read the rest of this entry »
