[John 15:15] Father, as we are no longer called servants by You, for a servant does not know what his Master is doing, please help us to embrace that You have called us friends.  Thank you for sharing with us all of the things that You have heard from Your Father.  Please help us to remember that we are [Isaiah 49:16] inscribed on the palms of Your hands.  Please help us to recall that [Romans 6:6] our old man was crucified with You and that our body of sin has been done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.  [2 Corinthians 5:17] Please help us to see that, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; and the old things have passed away and You have made all things new.  [Ephesians 4:24] Please help us to put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.  [1 Peter 2:9] Please help us to live as a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.  [Psalm 139:14] We will praise You, for we are fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that our souls know very well.  [Galatians 2:20] We have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer we who live, but Christ that lives within us; and the life which we now live in the flesh we live by faith in the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us.  [Philippians 3:20] For our citizenship is in Heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.  [Colossians 3:1-3] If then we were raised with Christ, help us to seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.  Please help us to set our minds on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.  Please help us always to remember our Eternal identity in You in Jesus’ name we pray.  Amen.
