Father God, the old self in me is gone, replaced by the new creature, renewed in my spirit. I bless you for this new self created in your likeness in true righteousness and holiness. I thank you for forgiveness. Show me how to live in Christ. Guide my steps, hold my heart, and continually renew my mind with your Word. I lift my prayer in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. But that is not the way you learned Christ!—assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” (Ephesians 4:19-24 ESV)
