Romans 7:18 NIV

[18] For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.

O Heavenly Father, Lord of the ages, thank You for Your eternal blessings. Thank You for the love of Christ that heals my broken heart and that gives me peace to weather any storm that may cross my path. Lord, You know the trials and challenges I face on a daily basis.You know the shortness of patience I show in response to frustrating situations. You know the fear that grips my heart when I violate the laws of Your scripture and the teachings of Jesus Christ. O Christ, my Savior and precious Redeemer, free me from the sins of this world so that I can truly reflect the love and life of Jesus Christ in all that I do. Purge my heart from evil thoughts and purify them with Your Holy Spirit so that through the Holy Spirit, I may walk in the footsteps of my Savior, secure in the knowledge that as a child of God, I can rise above my sinful nature. Grant these things, I pray, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
