Father please guide me in a plain path of righteousness according to Your will and glory. You are the Omnipotent Potter and I am the clay.
Shape me, mold me, use me and fill me each and everyday to become more like Christ.
In Jesus Name,
Less selfishness and more love,
Less insecurity and more kindness,
Less pride and more humility,
Less greed and more generosity,
Less entitlement and more work,
Less grudges and more forgiveness,
Less ignorance and more wisdom,
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
My Sovereign Lord, I boldly choose to live for You and You alone. Infiltrate into my heart, into my soul and into my life so I can be transformed into Your image.
Father, please take complete control. Increase as I decrease, as Jesus becomes the center of my heart and my life.
Draw near Oh Lord, as I step out today into this unholy land. Let each and every step I take be a step closer to You as I begin the journey of thinking and acting as my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen!
Heavenly Father, I ask for the Grace to flee from everything that does not bring glory to your name. Help me to live a Christlike life, focus my attention on the things that bring glory to God.
Save me from the temptations of this world and help me to be the true image of Christ on earth.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
Flood my soul with your spirit and life;
Penetrate and possess my whole being so completely
That all my life may be only a radiance of yours;
Shine through me and be so in me
That everyone with whom I come into contact
May feel your presence within me.
Let them look up and see no longer me—but only Jesus.
