Gracious and Holy God, you are the author of freedom. Let others see me living freely within the grace of your salvation. Give me the words to tell those in front of me all you have done that I may live free of guilt and shame, free from the lies of false teaching, free from the corruption of this world, and best of all free to be what you made me to be. Let them see the beauty of my free will choice to love and follow Jesus. Let them understand true freedom firsthand by making that choice for themselves. Draw them to you, Lord. Draw them into the joy of your salvation. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, the cornerstone, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31b-32 ESV)
