I Fail Yet You Love Me

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one. [Matthew 6:9-13] 

Holy Spirit even though I understand I am Your workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that I should walk in them, I still make mistakes and I still hurt people with my words or lack of them. I need to take time and listen and follow You better. I do my best to live peaceably among all people. Help me to be more discerning of what others need from me, wiser in how to speak and interact with family, friends, and others, understand that I am not the focal point in most people’s lives, and have the knowledge to be helpful or to be quiet. [Ephesians 2:10] 

Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain! Amen. [Chronicles 4:9&10]
