Biblical Prayers - No. 10

F R E E D O M

By the grace of my Lord Jesus Christ received by saving faith in him in all the Scriptures:

Lord Jesus, I praise you because you have the quality of perfect freedom. You use it always and at all times to do what is right and to say what is true. And I praise you because I know that it is your plan to make me perfectly free also. Help me to use my freedom as you do, without sin. I cannot succeed in this without you. I simply cannot do it on my own.

Thank you for your wonderful ways. In your Word you give me all the resources I need. Its teaching makes it possible for me to relate to you, which is what I choose. When you make me free, then I am free indeed. By your grace I will use my freedom to decide to do what you want me to do, and to say what you want me to say.

I realise that to choose my own way can only reduce my freedom, and the freedom of others. Wilfulness brings me into bondage to sin, Satan and evil. Help me to see that wrongdoing makes me its slave, no matter what the illusion of freedom may be. I praise you that your service is perfect freedom, because it gives me choice. Gladly do I choose to follow you, because your way is always best. I freely give you my total allegiance, because you are in all ways worthy of it.

Lord, please help me to understand the wonderful way of freedom in an age when it is greatly misunderstood. Help me to help others to see that their insistence on their own choices and their own rights apart from you, can only result in restraints on us all. Help me to help them achieve freedom from above. Free your people so that we all may free each other.

Lord, I marvel at the paradox of divine freedom. Your freedom permitted perfection. The wonder of it magnifies the glory and beauty of your wisdom and grace to me.
