Seeking to Improve

Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise His Holy name. Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things He does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagles! The Lord gives righteousness and justice to all who are treated unfairly. [Psalm 103:1-6, NLT] 

Holy Spirit I come before You and seek wisdom. I seek understanding. I desire to be more discerning. I realize that I am nothing without You. I fail daily to live up to the person I should be, yet You love, walk, and talk to me. I come to You, seeking to improve, to live, and to be able to help and love others. I pray that Your love will flow through me for I have not the nature for love on my own. I pray that I will not cause people pain. 

Holy Spirit help me to be like salt on this earth. Help me to never lose my saltiness so that I am useless. Help me to be a light to the world. Like a city on a hill that cannot be hidden and is so bright that gives light to others. Let my light so shine before men that they may see my good works and glorify my Father who is in heaven. In Jesus’ name, amen. [Matthew 5:13-16, MEV and my personalization]
