Thank You for the caring work that You did in my life and for the maturing process that continues to take place to this day. As I yield to Your ongoing teaching, training and corrective program within me. Provide me I pray, with Your constant help and guidance. May I learn the many lessons that You are planning to teach me, as You continue to comfort and correct.

May I be willing to learn all that You will teach me and may I be increasingly responsive to Your warnings and reminders.

Give me I pray, ears to hear Your still unappreciated voice and a heart that is willing to walk in the path that You would choose for me to follow. May I be willing to go where You show us, do what You would have me do and give up that which You choose to exclude from my life, even if I don’t understand.

As I surrender myself to the Holy Spirit, I believe that my steps are ordered by You, LORD.Holy Spirit, I commit and trust myself wholly to Your wisdom, expecting You to cause my thoughts to become agreeable to our Fathers will, so my plans will be established and succeed. I trust in You, LORD, with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. As I acknowledge You, You direct me in paths of righteousness.

I confess that as I become more devout, I can more easily recognize the inward witness of the Holy Spirit. Father, I hear the voice of the Good Shepherd, and a stranger’s voice I will not follow. For I am aware that my spirit is the candle of The LORD.

I meditate on the WORD day and night, not letting it depart from my mouth. Father, I test my inward witness with The WORD, for the Spirit and The WORD agree. I am quick to act on The WORD, as well as the prompting of my spirit. I am not a listener only, but also a doer. Therefore, I am blessed in all my deeds.”

So as to encourage me in my spiritual journey, as He slowly transforms me in to the coveted likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. I pray that the Holy Spirit will lead and guide me in all things, and that I will learn to listen to the gentle guidance of His voice. As I read Your Word or commune with You in prayer. Give me grace to know His still low voice as I search though the scriptures each day and the wisdom to discern Your spiritual guidance, when Godly Christians are prompted to offer direction and give me advice.

May I have an open heart and develop an accepting spirit and I pray that I may walk in Your ways and live a life that is well pleasing to You. Glorify my Father in heaven, I ask this in Jesus name, Amen.”
