{Galatians 5:1; ESV}

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

Father in heaven,

I thank You for Your love and Your grace.  Without these realities I would not have experienced Your compassion and mercy.  My hope flows out of the love You have for me.

Through Jesus Christ I have freedom from sin.  The power of his death on the cross delivers me from the clutches of sin.  The power of his resurrection removes the chains of sin and gives me a brand new life.  This is the promise I have from You.

The reality is that I still feel like sin has a hold of me.  There are times when I think the chains of sin have a tighter hold on me than every before.  I am tired of being a slave to sin! Deliver me Lord, from the sin that is still in my life.  May I experience the freedom the Jesus won for me.

My desire is to live a life worthy of Jesus, and I can’t do that when chains of sin hold me in bondage.  I surrender my life to you, Lord God, so You can remove the chain of sin that binds my heart.  Only You can deal with the sin that lingers in my life.

Thank You God for not giving up on me and helping me overcome the sin that continues to hold me back.  Help me live a life that glorifies You.  It is in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
