Dear Lord, give me the strength through the power of Your Holy Spirit to hear Your voice and follow it. Help me fight the temptation to sin that bubbles up inside me whenever my mind strays from you. Let Your will be done always in my life, Lord.
Let me receive Your Word with an open mind and clear eye. Whenever I read Your Scripture, let Your Holy Spirit guide me to the truth, setting aside my preconception and self-justification. I pray to hear what You intend for me to hear.
And, help me always to an attitude of humility. Fill me with acceptance in place of judgment, sympathy in place of anger, faith in place of resentment. Help me to love others just like You loved them.
