Heavenly Father, You are the Potter and I am the clay. Christ is the true Vine and I am a simple branch that seeks to abide in my Saviour. I pray that as I rest in Him day by day, so Your Holy Spirit would carry out a good work in me, so that I may bear much fruit to Your honour and glory.
May I abide daily in Christ and remain in Him and He in me, so that the Holy Spirit may perform unhindered, the necessary transforming work within my heart, so that I may bring forth acceptable fruit at the proper time.
May I be willing to learn the lessons of life that You would teach me and be ready to accept that Your pruning knife and corrective rod is the means to perfect who I am in Christ, and make me more like Him.
I pray that I may be a fruitful branch that bears much good fruit to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name,
