Ten Days of Prayer – Day 4
I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what the will of God— what is good and acceptable and perfect. — Romans 12:1-2
Thank God that in the waters of baptism you have been claimed as God’s own child, and through the blood of the cross have been forgiven all your sins. Acknowledge before God the countless ways in which this world pulls you away from God and God’s will for your life, and seeks to conform you to its way. Be specific about those areas in which the urge to conform is strongest. Ask God to transform you so that your life might reflect God’s will, and that you might reflect God’s love to those around you.
