Romans 12:1–2 (nlt)
1 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.
2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Galatians 5:22–23 (nlt)
22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control.
Heavenly Father, I give you all that I am because of all that you have done for me. My whole life Lord, every area, may it be consumed as a sacrifice to you. And may I give it in a way that is acceptable to you, truly for your glory, and for no self-serving purpose. This is true worship Lord, please bring me to this place.
I turn from the behaviors and customs of this world Lord. Show me where I’m thinking and acting out of the influence of the world or my own flesh, and give me the power to crucify those tendencies until they have no hold on me.
God please transform me. Make me a new person. The new nature that you’ve given me positionally, allow it to truly transform me - by changing the way that I think. Lord I need a full mind renewal, a full renovation. I need to see things through your eyes, and think things through your truths. I recognize how powerful the mind you gave me is, where I set it, is where I go. I choose to daily, moment by moment, turn my mind from the world and toward you. Please renew it daily Lord, so that I will learn to know your will for me, your good and pleasing and perfect will. I know that it's the power of your Word that renews my mind, help me to absorb it, to be immersed in it, to desire it more than my daily food. Drive me to take it in every day for my transformation.
By the power of your Holy Spirit, please produce love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control in me.
As I daily surrender all that I am to you as a living sacrifice, please continue to radically transform me, through the power of your Word and the power of your Holy Spirit. I give myself fully to you Lord. In your name Jesus, and for your sake, amen.
