Lord, let me be a living example of the increasing and decreasing principle. Help me grow more like you every day. Let there be less of me and more of you. Let your light shine through me in your name above all names, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“The one who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is now complete. He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:29-30 ESV)
