For you did not receive the spirit
of bondage again to fear, but you
received the Spirit of adoption by
whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
Father, you have made me your child through
your Spirit. In your kindness you adopted
me and delivered me from sin and death.
Remind me today what it means to be your
child and to be free from that law. It is so easy for
me to live my day on my own terms. Help me to
live it in light of your grace.
I pray for my friends and family. Help them
experience your love as their father and feel their
inheritance in your spirit.
Thank you for accepting me as I am but not
leaving me the same.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
