(an acrostic prayer)
God, our Father, Jesus, our Savior, Holy Spirit, our Sustainer, we come in humble adoration to worship You.
Engender in us Your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control, Father!
Negate our selfish attitudes and our pride with Your grace and mercy as we come for cleansing today, O Lord.
Take away our bent to sinning, Father. We need to be straightened by Your Word and strengthened by Your Spirit.
Lead us, Father, we are followers of Your Spirit. Produce in Your children the fruit needed to bring others into Your kingdom.
Enough of ourselves, Father, help us to show You to our families, our friends and our acquaintances in the gentleness of Your Spirit.
Nudge us along the path that You have already walked for us, dear Lord. Call us anew and help us to stand with You.
Enthrall us with the power of Your Holy Spirit, Father, that we may see where You are working and are calling us to come alongside for Your kingdom’s work.
Secure us in the assurance of Your love and mercy, dear Father. May we ever share the fruit of Your Spirit with this world.
Send us forward in the gentleness of Your presence that we may take Your Word and spread it like a soothing salve to comfort and to cleanse, O Lord.
We pray in the name of our gentle Savior, even Jesus the Christ. Amen!
