From Handbook to Prayer
I will not let sin reign in my mortal body that I should obey its lusts. Nor will I present the members of my body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but I will present myself to God as one who is alive from the dead and my members as instruments of righteousness to God. (Romans 6:12–13)
May I put away all filthiness and the overflow of wickedness, and in meekness accept the word planted in me, which is able to save my soul. (James 1:21)
Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal.
I have called on You, O God, for You will answer me;
Incline Your ear to me and hear my prayer.
Show Your wonderful lovingkindness,
O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand
From those who rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me in the shadow of Your wings. (Psalm 17:6–8)
