A Prayer To ‘Be Holy As God Is Holy’

Heavenly Father, I come before you with a humble heart, desiring to be holy as you are holy. I recognize that holiness is not something I can achieve on my own, but it is a work of your Spirit within me. I pray for your help and guidance as I seek to live a life that reflects your holiness.

Lord, I ask for your forgiveness for any sins or impurities in my life that hinder my pursuit of holiness. Search my heart and reveal to me anything that is not pleasing to you. Give me the strength to repent and turn away from anything that separates me from your holiness (Psalm 139:23-24).

Father, I pray for a heart that is set apart for you. Help me to live my life in a manner that is worthy of you and pleasing to you. Transform my thoughts, attitudes, and actions to align with your will. May my life be a reflection of your holiness (1 Peter 1:15-16).

Lord, I ask for the power of your Holy Spirit to work in me, producing the fruit of holiness. Help me to cultivate love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control in my life. May these virtues shine through me and draw others to you (Galatians 5:22-23).

Father, I pray for a renewed mind and a transformed heart. Help me to set my mind on things above and to meditate on your Word day and night. Fill me with your truth and wisdom, so that I may discern what is holy and pleasing to you (Romans 12:2).

Lord, I ask for the strength to resist temptation and to flee from anything that leads me away from your holiness. Help me to walk in purity and righteousness, seeking to honor you in all areas of my life. Give me the discernment to make choices that align with your holiness (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

Father, I surrender my own desires and ambitions to you. Help me to die to self and to live for you. Fill me with your love and grace, so that I may extend forgiveness, mercy, and compassion to others. May my life be a testimony of your holiness and grace (Colossians 3:12-14).

Thank you, Lord, for the privilege of pursuing holiness. I trust in your power and grace to work in me, transforming me into the likeness of your Son, Jesus Christ. May my life bring glory to your name and draw others to experience your holiness.

I pray all these things in the name of Jesus, who is the perfect example of holiness. Amen.
