Prayer: Our Father, we thank you for a new day to serve you and glorify you with our lives. We are grateful to you for your redeeming and renewing work in our lives as you conform us more and more into the very image of your Son and our Savior. As your people, we desire to be holy and to live each moment glorifying you. We long to see the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. Therefore, be kind to us and work in us more love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness. Please help us to love you and love one another. Please help us to demonstrate joy that can only come from you regardless of our circumstances. Please grant us more kindness to others and to speak evil of no one. Please cause us to live more faithfully before you with our lives. Forgive us, Father, for the many ways in which we wander from your Word and grant us more of your Spirit that we may serve you with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. We pray these things in the name of the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
