Prayer: may I not judge

Lord, thank you so much for the inspiring example of those like the apostle Paul. Whatever the outward appearance or circumstance, may my heart be full of joy. May I not judge people or situations by how they look from the outside, but like you, always look to the heart.

Prayer: help me to activate my faith

Dear Lord,

Thank You, God, for reminding me that I have You and the Holy Spirit– the ones that I should be depending my life on.

Help me to activate my faith, help me to remember to rely on You, to pray, and to pray in tongue regularly throughout my day. Help me not to segregate prayer as only something that I do on a certain time!

I yearn to live a Spirit-led life!

Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

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.
