Holy Spirit, I come with humility and reverence to ask that you speak through me. Grant me words of mercy and justice. Give me understanding, wisdom and discernment when I am before those you send across my path. Help me reach those in crisis, the brokenhearted and the lost for your good pleasure and your glory. Show me the most effective ways to share your love and grace in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?” (1 Kings 3:9 ESV)
