Prayer for the Spirit of righteousness
The Spirit of righteousness is a product of the costly sacrifice Christ paid for us on the cross of calvary. It is renewed and sustained by our relationship with Christ, not by observing rules. Christ is our righteousness
It is the Spirit of righteousness that gives you the ability to live a life that glorifies and showcases God to our brothers and sisters in the faith and to unbelievers.
The Spirit of righteousness also enables us to do good and live a life that exemplifies God’s justice.
The heart of man is desperately evil. On our own, we lack the capability to live righteously, but after accepting the gift of salvation, the indwelling of the HolySpirit in our new nature manifests as the spirit of righteousness.
We need to constantly pray the Spirit of righteousness over ourselves for sanctification from all forms of worldliness which produces the inclination for evil and all forms of unrighteousness.
The Spirit of righteousness can only be received by someone who has accepted Christ as Lord and saviour. If you are yet to accept Christ, Please do so now by saying the prayer.
Lord Jesus thank you for your love for me. I believe that you died for me on the cross. I believe that you sent your only begotten son to pay the price for my redemption.
Today, I accept Jesus as my Lord and saviour. I live for him, move in him and have my being in him, by the power of his grace in Jesus name.
