Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done. - Luke 22:42

 Dear Jesus,

You had the perfect heart for your Father in the last hours of your life when you prayed. "Not my will but thine be done."  I'm glad you prayed so perfectly because you were being my Savior, by living the life I would never manage to live.  By your indwelling Holy Spirit lead me to have that same self-sacrificing spirit that yields to our Father's will in every arena of my life.  I want to live for the audience of one that you lived for. I want to please him and not just myself.  Give me that selfless attitude.  Without your converting Spirit I will never even remember what selflessness looks like, much less practice it. So, send your Holy Spirit to change me from the inside out.


To want what God wants, is a clear mark of conversion.
