Heavenly Father, how I thank You that by faith in the Lord Jesus, 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 in to the lovely likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
I pray that the Holy Spirit would lead and guide me 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 the wisdom to discern Your spiritual nudges, when godly Christians are prompted to offer direction and give me advice.
May I maintain an open heart and develop a teachable spirit - and I pray that I may walk in Your ways and live a life that is well pleasing to You. and glorify my Father in heaven, I ask this in Jesus name,
