A Prayer for Spiritual Maturity

O, God my Father, I would be a mature person. I am not certain what maturity is, but I know when I act childishly and of this I am ashamed. Help me to bring my emotions under the control of the spirit.

Help me to check on my loud talk, my insistence on having my way, my fears, doubts, and other things, which stand as evidence of my immaturity.

I do commit myself anew and afresh to Thee. Help me to be a glory and not a shame as I profess Thy name. For His sake, I pray.
