A Prayer for Growing in Christ

Help me live a life worthy of the calling I’ve received from you.

Let me practice humility, patience, gentleness, and forbearance.

Keep me focused on the hope of Christ with single-mindedness.

Through your grace, give me the strength to build others up.

Let me grow in faith each day, learning more and attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Based on Ephesians 3:16-19

Unity and Maturity in the Body of Christ
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called ; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.”

Our work

God, establish the work of our hands and confirm it in our hearts. Let your favor be upon us. Give us a new understanding of the work you’ve planned for us and let us use our time for eternal purposes. Renew in us your Spirit!

Based on Psalm 90:17
