PRAYER POINTS ON HOLINESS
Holiness in simple terms means the state of being holy, to be set apart and to be without blemish. In 1st peter 1v 16, there is a command which says: “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
Initially the human race was considered sinful and under the wrath of God Romans 3v23, but the sacrifice made by Jesus Christ on the cross on our behalf, took away our sins and blemishes John 3v16, and made us holy and reconciled with God. It is then our duty to accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and savior, and as soon as we accept Christ, confess our sins and believe in Him, He makes us holy and free from sin.
It is however important that we remain holy by consistently checking our actions, motives, conversations and associations through the help of the Holy Spirit.
Are you presently struggling to live a holy life? Is the voice of your flesh seemingly loud than that of your Spirit? Are you finding it hard to please God?

1 John 3:6-10
No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.
But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.
