Almighty, Benevolent Father, there is none like you who goes out for the salvation of your beloved, who equips the believer to serve, who sustains and provides and who loves unconditionally. There is none like you. Continue your work in me, Father. Mold me into the unity of the faith and knowledge of your Son and mature me to the stature of the fullness of Christ so that I may serve you better every day. Edify me in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.” (Ephesians 4:11-14 ESV)
