Perfect Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of my Savior Jesus Christ to bring You praise and thanks for Your perfect divine nature. It is a great blessing that You impart to me, a born-again believer, the choice to live righteously. 2 Peter 1:3-4 “As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.“
Because it is clear in Your Word that I do not have the resources and power to live a life full of glory and virtue, I ask that You direct me with Your moral goodness. 2 Corinthians 5:21 “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.“
Thank you for the gift of Your divine nature so that if I desire, I am able to escape worldly desires for sin and be an effective, fruitful tool for You and Your glory. I ask that You direct me to put all my trust and hope in Your perfection. Develop in me the path You have laid out, leading from virtue all the way to love. 2 Peter 1:5c-7 “Add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.” Shape me to Your will and use me as You will.” Amen.
