Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
Our Father, Ruler of the Firmament, Creator of the Universe, you have chronicled our destiny from the beginning of time and sculpted us even before we entered our mother’s womb. But we tend to become captives to the illusory magnificence of life on earth, conveniently unmindful that it is merely a passing phase meant to refine our souls, realize our mortal nature and define the true purpose of life as being to glorify and worship our Maker and magnify the works of your hands.
Father, we enjoy the privilege of entitlement as your children and inheritors of your Kingdom. Help our spirits transcend the confines of our body towards an upsurge of spiritual worthiness, discerning the truth of us being essentially spiritual beings in a worldly experience, offering our earthly lives as a fitting sacrifice in acknowledgement of the redemptive sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit embodies within us a glimpse of your benefactions as children of God and fellowship with the Holy Trinity. Walking the path of wisdom and spontaneous godliness, may the triumphant and transformative power of the Holy Spirit reform our minds through faith in Jesus and the sufficiency of your grace to be ministers of your new Covenant. May our anthem be ‘Your Will, Your Way, is our way’ in Jesus’ Name. Amen
