Prayer For Yourself and Others Concerning Sanctification

Dear Father,
Thank-you that You have freed us from the bondage of sin through Jesus Christ. By the power of the Holy Spirit, help us to follow Jesus’ example in sanctification. Cause us to desire to be holy and set apart from sin. May we be reserved for Your use – may we be set apart to do Your will. Cause us to gird up the loins of our minds, be sober, and rest our hope fully upon the grace of Jesus Christ. Let us be as obedient children, not conforming ourselves to our former lusts. May we be holy in all our conduct. Cause us to yield to the Holy Spirit and may there be tangible evidences of growth in our lives. Thank-you that You chose us to be Your temple. May we take great care of and continually sanctify our temples.
In Jesus’ name, Amen

1 Peter 1:13-16 NKJV
“Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

1 Corinthians 6:19 NKJV
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”

1 Thessalonians 4:3-7 NKJV
“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified. For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness.”
you meat, and you shall eat.”
