Praying from 1 Peter 2:16 relating to Freedom, righteousness, servanthood.

Dear God, help me to live as a free person, but not to use my freedom as an excuse for wickedness. Instead, guide me to use my freedom to serve you as a bondservant. May I always remember that my freedom comes with responsibility and that I am accountable to you for how I use it. Help me to honor you in all that I do and to live a life that reflects your love and grace. Amen.

Verse: Live as free people, yet not using your freedom for a cloak of wickedness, but as bondservants of God.
1 Peter 2:16

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to live as free people, but not to use their freedom as an excuse for wickedness. Instead, they are to live as bondservants of God.
