Lord, I thank You for the example of the Lord Jesus Christ Who learnt obedience through the things that He suffered. I too want to learn to be obedient and to be responsive to Your voice. And Lord, although I do not pray for sufferings in my life, I do ask that like my Saviour, I may learn obedience – even if it means that like Jesus, I too have to go through suffering.
Give me ears that are open to Your voice.
Give me eyes that are ready to see the spiritual lessons that You desire to teach me.
Give me a heart that is receptive to Your Word of truth.
And give me the grace to pray, "Your will not mine be done." In Jesus' name I pray,
