Lord God Almighty,

I long to live in the blessing of Your love more and more. I long to be a more faithful disciple of Jesus more and more. I long to grow in holiness more and more.

Not separated from the life in which You have placed me – but in the midst of it as a real human being in real life. Not only in highly spiritual moments – but in the daily business of being a living, breathing, flesh and blood human being. Not just when I am at my best – but on my worst days and all those days in-between.

So I ask for You to shower me with just the grace I need in just the way I need it at just the time I need it. I ask for that grace to help me do what I long – but struggle – to do. And I do it all in the strong name of Jesus.

Amen.
