Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin. (1 Peter 4:1)
Abba, our Father Almighty and God Most High, when You went down from heaven and manifested Yourself in the flesh, You left an example Your servants should follow. You left the world victoriously. You conquered all tribulations and temptations of Satan. You never succumbed to the lust of the flesh that causes people to commit sins. You kept on living in holiness and no deceit was found in Your mouth. We pray, our Father, to have a mind like Yours when You came down from heaven. May our priority in life be to please You by living in holiness. Since we are in the flesh, prone to commit sins, may You give us strength to live in spirit. With this, we can endure the lust of the flesh if we keep on living in righteousness until reaching its perfection. If we do this, we can be with You in Your everlasting Kingdom, where anything wicked and vile cannot enter. We truly hope that You will help us. We believe in Your mighty power as our only God, Christ Jesus. Amen.
