Gebedpunt/Prayer 23-01-2021

Sanctify us O Lord, we call upon Your name, Jesus!

Set us apart O Lord, we bow down to You.

You are the Lord who sanctifies! Incline the ears of Your people to Your voice, circumcise the hearts of Your people to feel Your heartbeat. We come in honesty and in humility, recognizing that, You alone are God. We ourselves used to be in the darkness, but since we have become the Lord’s people, we are in the light. So, Lord, we recommit ourselves to live like people who belong to the light, for it is the light that brings a rich harvest of every kind of goodness, righteousness, and truth. Help us, O Lord, to learn what pleases You. And Lord, cut our ties with worthless things and have nothing to do with them. Purify us O Lord! Help us to be alert and watchful, and not live like ignorant people, but like wise people. We recommit our lives to You, our Lord, and we choose to surrender our lives that have been bought by Your precious blood, Jesus. Amen.

(A prayer based on Eph 5:8-11, 15)
