Heavenly Father, how we thank You for our salvation, which You have given to us as a free gift of grace.. by faith in the Lord Jesus. Thank You also that Your Holy Spirit has made me alive in Him and placed me into the family of God and the body of Christ.
Thank You that He has set His seal of ownership upon me and taken up residence within my heart.. so as to empower me in my spiritual walk, as He gradually transforms me into a lovely likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
I pray that the Holy Spirit would lead and guide in all things, and that I would learn to listen to the gentle promptings of His voice.. as I read Your Word or commune with You in prayer.
Give me grace to recognise His still small voice as I search though the scriptures each day.. and furnish me with the wisdom I need to discern Your spiritual nudges, through godly Christians, who may be prompted to offer direction or give me advice.
May I maintain an open heart and develop a teachable spirit, and I pray that may I walk in Your ways and live a life that is well pleasing to You.. and which glorifies my Father in heaven, I ask this in Jesus name,
