Day 9: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

God, as I experience this new life that You promise help me not to add a bunch of new rules to it. Lord teach me that there is nothing I can do to get You to love me any more, or any less. 

For Your word says, "This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life." 

Father, I want that new life. I want to live for You and do my best for You. Help me to understand that when I mess up, I don't have to hide, I can run back to You and receive forgiveness. Lord, I need that new life. Help me to stay on Your path this time. I know it's the best for me. -In Jesus' name, Amen.

Day 8: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

Father, even me?  Even with my past, my current issues, you give me new life?  

God, Your word declares, "...everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life." (1 Cor. 15:22).  

Lord, I would like that new life.  I would like the chance to start over and do things Your way this time, so I have decided, I belong to You Jesus.  -Amen
