Filled and Walking With God

How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of Heaven’s Armies. I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the Lord. With my whole being, body, and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God. I will shout joyfully to the living God. [Psalm 84:1-3] 

Holy Spirit Your word says: “Those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be conceited, provoking one another, and envying one another.” [Galatians 5:24-26] Holy Spirit help me not to provoke anyone, promote envy, and not to be conceited myself. Help me to remember all of Your creation and we are all made differently with different talents, purposes, and abilities. It is what makes us unique like the stars. Teach me to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and even slower to anger. [James 1:19] 

Holy Spirit teach me to continually walk in and with You. Help me to stay on the path that was intended for me. Help me to grow in my understanding, wisdom, and faith so that I can be the be husband, parent, and grandparent possible. Teach me to walk so close to You that I will reflect Your Spirit to others and help build the kingdom.  

I pray and ask that I may be filled with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that I may walk worthy of You, fully pleasing, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of You; strengthened with all might, according to Your glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified me to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in the light. You have delivered me from the power of darkness and conveyed me into the kingdom of the Son of Your love, in whom I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. You are the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by You all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through You for You. And You are before all things, and in You, all things exist. And You are the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things You may have the preeminence. In Your blessed Son Jesus’ name, Amen. (Colossians 1:9-18)
