Praying with Paul: ‘The Flesh Versus the Spirit’
Dear Father, giver of your Spirit,
Help me to walk by the Spirit and not gratify the desires of my flesh. For the desires of my flesh are opposed to the desires of my spirit and to the desires of your Spirit for me. These things set up an opposition within me to keep me from doing what I want. But thank you for letting me know that if I live by the Spirit I do something different than just live by the rules of the law, that in fact I am not under law.
In the name of Jesus I ask you to perfect us, whatever that may take, and give us the grace to endure your renovation process. Amen.
