Praying for Your Child’s Freedom from Sin

Redeeming Savior,
At great cost to yourself have you purchased our freedom from slavery to sin (John 8:34). We were enslaved—the whole world, prisoners of sin—but by the blood of Christ are we made free to worship and obey you in the strength of your Spirit (Romans 6:18). Still, we struggle so with following you, hindered by many obstacles, weighed down by the sin that so easily entangles (Hebrews 12:1). Rescue __________ from every last vestige of sin in his/her life; free him/her from those generational sins that we have passed on in our frail, fallen state. Demolish every pretension that sets itself against knowledge of you, taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). Give him/her the courage and discipline to put to death sin in his/her life by the Spirit (Romans 8:13). Set him/her completely free to walk by the Spirit, and thus no longer to gratify the desires of the flesh (Galatians 5:16). When flesh and Spirit conflict, may your Spirit overcome the flesh and deliver him/her to new life in you. For the sake of your name, remove every stronghold of sin in __________’s life that he/she may reverently follow Christ in complete obedience.
Amen.
