Holy Spirit, help us to walk by your Spirit, so that we don’t fulfill the desires of the flesh. For our flesh wages war against you. Forgive us for trying to live out of our old sinful nature. Instead, help us to live in our new nature by faith in Jesus Christ. Our old nature has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer we who live, but Christ lives in us. So we now live in our earthly bodies by trusting in the Son of God, who loved us and gave himself for us (Galatians 2:20). Amen.
