Prayer to become more like Jesus

As we all strive to become more like Jesus, we do encounter bumps and obstacles along the way. Remember though that the race is not for the swift but for those who endure to the end!

The following is a quote from Rick Warren:
Becoming like Christ is a long, slow process of growth. Spiritual maturity is neither instant nor automatic; it is a gradual, progressive development that will take the rest of your life.

Referring to this process, Paul said, “This will continue until we are . . . mature, just as Christ is, and we will be completely like him.” (Ephesians 4:13 CEV)

You are a work in progress. Your spiritual transformation in developing the character of Jesus will take the rest of your life, and even then it won’t be completed here on earth. It will only be finished when you get to heaven or when Jesus returns.

Prayer to become more like Jesus

Almighty Father, Creator of the universe, I approach Your Heavenly Gates with a grateful heart. I bless Your Holy Name and submit the honor and praise that is due unto You.

Beautiful Lord, I was created in your image, fearfully and wonderfully made to be the light in this dark world.

Father, please guide me in a plain path of righteousness, according to Your will and glory. You are the Omnipotent Potter and I am the clay. Shape me, mold me, use me and fill me each and everyday to become more like Christ.

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Praying for strength and wisdom

Heavenly Father, Jesus was the perfect example of how I should live my life. Allow me the strength and wisdom to follow in his footsteps.

Love truly came down when He was sent to die on the cross and save an undeserving sinner like me.

Grant me the power to be pure, peaceful, loving, considerate, submissive, merciful, impartial and sincere toward my fellow men.

Isaiah 40:31 Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

Take complete control, Lord

My Sovereign Lord, I boldly choose to live for You and You alone. Infiltrate into my heart, into my soul and into my life so I can be transformed into Your image.

Father, please take complete control. Increase as I decrease, as Jesus becomes the center of my heart and my life.

Draw near Oh Lord, as I step out today into this unholy land. Let each and every step I take be a step closer to You as I begin the journey of thinking and acting as my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen!

Jeremiah 29:11 ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’
