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: 2 Corinthians 7:1
So then, dear friends, since we have these promises, let us cleanse ourselves from every impurity of the flesh and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God. (Christian Standard Bible)
Father, thank you for making us your sons and daughters in Jesus. Help us each day to live out what this means. May we seek to flee from sin, may we seek to walk in holiness, and may we seek the sanctification that you provide through your Spirit. Father, stir our hearts so that we won’t be satisfied with anything less than the life you have called us to. Give us a greater desire to grow in our faith and to shun our sin. Amen.
