Renew Me Again So I Can Stay Strong

Heavenly Father I praise You for being a God who understands His creation and cares. I praise You for creating within me a desire to know, learn, and use my understanding to live a life as full as possible and to honor You while I live.  

Holy Spirit helps me to embody, meditate, and permeate Romans 12:1&2 in my life—In view of God’s mercy, I offer my body as living a sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this will be my spiritual act of worship. I refuse to conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of my mind. Then I will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing, and perfect will. I will meditate daily and pray daily to help in this renewing process so that my focus, my heart, and my trust remains in and on You. 

Let me continually offer the sacrifice of praise to You, oh God, that is, the fruit of my lips, giving thanks to Your name. Help me to not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices You are well pleased. I will do my best to obey those who rule over me and be submissive for they watch out for my soul, and they will give account for how they lead. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for me. For I am confident that I have a good conscience, in all things desiring to live honorably. But I especially am urged to do this. Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make me complete in every good work to do His will, working in me what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen (Hebrews 13:14-21)
