Day 23: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

God, it's time to take a turn.  I understand now that You have forgiven me, that Your love applies to me despite my mistakes and shortcomings, so now it's time to get moving.  

Lord, now that I know that You aren't out to get me, but are actually rooting for me, I am dreaming of some big things to do with You. 

For Your word says, "What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31). -In Jesus' name, Amen

Day 22: 30 Days of Prayer for New Life

Father, help me not to cling to the old things in my life that I enjoyed but were a distraction from my relationship with You. 

For Jesus said, "Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity" (John 12:25).  

Lord, I know you want us to experience joy, just not at the expense of sinning against You.  Father, show me how to love the life I live, not the one that I design, but the one You have planned for me. -In Jesus' name, Amen
