Lord Christ, I pray this day that ______________________ and I will continue walking by faith in you so that when you appear we may be confident and unashamed before you at your coming. I know that you are wholly righteous, and I thank you that because we have been born of you we too can do what is right. I accept the truth that doing what is right is a mark of the children of God. Father, I thank you for the great love you have lavished on us, that we can rightly be called your children. I affirm that is what we truly are, even though the world does not recognize us as your children any more than it recognizes Jesus as your Son. Lord Jesus, I thank you for the promise of what we will become in you. I know that even though we are now the children of God, what we will be has not yet been made known. But I claim your promise that when you appear, we will be like you, because we will see you as you are. With this hope in our hearts and minds, I pray that we will purify ourselves just as you are pure. I affirm that there is no sin in you. I thank you that you appeared to take away our sins, and I thank you that by living in you we can overcome sin. I know the reason you appeared in human flesh was to destroy the devil’s work, and so I pray that you will destroy all his work in our lives. Father, I affirm that no one who is born of you, no one who lives in Christ, can continue to live in unrepentant sin. I thank you that we have been born of you, and that your seed remains in us. These things I pray in the name of Christ, the Son of God. Amen.
