We know that you are our Redeemer, that you alone could and have graciously saved us. We are no longer captives to sin and death. We are free because of Jesus.
Help us to know what that means. Help us to set our hearts and minds on these things.
Help us to know what it is to be redeemed. Help us understand the tremendous cost, the great lengths that you went to see us set free. May we be overwhelmed by the power of your grace and goodness. May we be found swimming in oceans of your love and radical forgiveness.
Help us to know what this freedom is that we have in you. Help us to understand that we are not shackled to the ways and patterns of this world. We are able to live by your Spirit, the way of Love.
Move us by your Spirit. Teach us by your Spirit, Lord, that we would be drawn back to you with renewed awe and worship.
We pray in the mighty name of Jesus,
