I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, entreat you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance to one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift.
Dear Holy Father,
I pray that my children would embrace their high calling of being Your child. Give them a heart's desire to follow you, step by step. Fill them with humility, gentleness, patience, and love for each other. May they be diligent to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. O God, You are the One true God who reigns on high and in our hearts. I ask that Your Spirit would work mightily through each of my children according to the different gifts that you have given them.
I will stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of God! And I will praise the Lord, for it is good; I will sing praises to the Lord for it is lovely.- Psalm 135:2-3
Dear Lord, make our hearts a sanctuary of praise to your sweet name. What a beautiful name it is! You are good, you are righteous, you are holy! You are gracious, you are forgiving, you are compassionate...there is no end to You. Mere words are not enough! May we sing of your love and your name all the day long. Amen
