Praying from 1 Peter 1:16 relating to Holiness, God’s character, Sanctification.

Dear God, thank you for reminding me that I am called to be holy, just as you are holy. Help me to live a life that reflects your holiness and to always strive to be more like you. Give me the strength and wisdom to resist temptation and to follow your commands. May my thoughts, words, and actions be pleasing to you and bring glory to your name. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Verse: because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
1 Peter 1:16

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to be holy because God is holy.
