Praying the Bible ~ 1 Corinthians 6:11

Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.

Text: 1 Corinthians 6:11
And some of you used to be like this. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (Christian Standard Bible)

Prayer
Father, how you see us matters more than anything. What you have done for us through Jesus matters more than anything. We each have our sins. Apart from Jesus, we each lived lives full of rebellion against you. Our sins may have looked different than our neighbor’s, but our sins still condemned us. On our own, we would be hopeless. But you acted. You changed things. You gave us Jesus and your Holy Spirit who washed away the stain of sin, who purified us before you, and who made us right in your sight. Though we are still far from perfect, you do not hold our sin against us. Instead, you hold us as pure and righteous, all because of your great love for us through Jesus. Thank you for this gift of grace. Amen.
