Prayer: bring life to everyone I encounter

Lord, I come to you today. Fill me again today with your Holy Spirit, with streams of living water to bring life to everyone I encounter.

As I prayed this, I wonder if often I got it wrong by “trying” to be this “life-bringer”. I try hard not to say the wrong hurting words; not to be easily annoyed; not to be brash; to love others despite! And I felt dejected when I failed yet again.

Dear self: If anything good were to come out of me, it will be the work of the Holy Spirit, never from my striving.
