Holy Spirit, teach me. Help me grow a little each day to become more like Jesus. Guide me to fulfill my responsibility to the body of Christ. Ground me in the faith to build up the Church in love. I lift my request in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” (Ephesians 4:15-16 ESV)
