Morning Prayer for Today – Keep Me Pure

My Father, 

I thank you for saving me through the finished work of Jesus Christ.

You washed away my sins with His precious Blood and made it possible for me to stand before you in righteousness.

Your word says in 1 John 3:1-3:

See how great a love the Father has given us, that we would be called children of God; and in fact we are. 

For this reason the world does not know us: because it did not know Him.

Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be.

We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. 

And everyone who has this hope set on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

Lord, this understanding gives me great hope as I go about my daily business, knowing that I will see Jesus one day.

I also understand that it is my responsibility to keep myself pure from the corruption of this world as I wait for that day.

Father, you are a holy God; only holy people can dwell with you.

I am reading Psalms 24:1-6:

The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains, the world, and those who live in it.

For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.

Who may ascend onto the hill of the Lord? And who may stand in His holy place?

One who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to deceit,

and has not sworn deceitfully.

He will receive a blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face—even Jacob.

Lord, I ask that you purify my heart through the same blood that sanctified and made me holy.

Cleanse my spiritual garments from every stain of sin, and give me the grace to stay away from anything that will pollute my heart.

Father, let my heart be willing to resist the devil and his sinful suggestions, knowing his plan is to separate me from you and destroy me forever.

Thank you for fighting for me and helping me to live for your glory.

I know you have heard my prayer, in Jesus’ name.
