"If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you." - Romans 8:11
Dear Lord, every day I try to do well in serving you. I know you like to see me try. But you also know how I fall short. I am thankful that you forgive and don't dwell on my shortcomings. I don't want to dwell on them either. But I have a request, by your Spirit who lives in me, help me get it right more often for my good and your glory. By your Spirit change my desires. Give me keen discernment. Make me see exactly what is going on around me and help me figure out what to do about the complicated messes that get thrown at me. I want to press redeeming grace into the corner of the world around me. I need you every minute of today in order to do this. So, walk with me and give spiritual life to this dead head. AMEN
"If it were not for air I'd be gone. If it were not for God's Spirit I would be the walking dead."
