Holiness and purity

Bible references
– 1 Peter 1:15-16
But as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

– 1 Thessalonians 4:7
For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.

– 2 Corinthians 7:1
Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.

– Hebrews 12:14
Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.


You are the source of all holiness and purity. I come before You humbly, acknowledging that I am in need of Your grace and transformation in my life. Please forgive me for the times I have fallen short and strayed from Your ways. I desire to be holy as You are holy, and to be purified from all unrighteousness. Help me to surrender every aspect of my life to You, so that You may cleanse me and fill me with Your Spirit.

I pray for strength to resist temptation and to live a life that is pleasing to You. May Your Word wash over me and renew my mind, so that I may think and act in accordance with Your will. I ask for Your guidance and wisdom to discern what is pure and right in Your sight. Please empower me to walk in obedience and to be a vessel of Your love and grace to others. I long to be transformed into the image of Your Son, Jesus Christ, and to reflect his holiness in all that I do.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
