You Must Keep All My Decrees and Regulations
The purposes of this prayer are: Justice, Holiness/Righteousness and Obedience.
Holy God, you instructed the Israelites on why they must strictly obey all your commandments and must completely and piteously expel the Canaanites from the Promised Land: “You must keep all my decrees and regulations by putting them into practice; otherwise the land to which I am bringing you as your new home will vomit you out. Do not live according to the customs of the people I am driving out before you. It is because they do these shameful things that I detest them. But I have promised you, ‘You will possess their land because I will give it to you as your possession- a land flowing with milk and honey.’ I am the Lord your God, who has set you apart from all other people.” Leviticus 20:22–24 (NLT). Lord, as followers of Christ, we are instructed to emulate his life and to obey his commandments- most especially to love you with all our soul, heart, mind and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We pray for the intensity of obedience that is required to be able to fulfill these commandments. Amen.
