And a cloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my beloved Son. Hear him!” (Mark 9:7)
Father, give us ears and hearts to hear what Jesus is saying to us.
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. (Galatians 5:16)
Holy Spirit, help us and guide us in our walk with Jesus.
For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. (Galatians 5:17)
Jesus, I confess that I do the things I don’t want to do and avoid doing the things I should do, and there is no health in me. Renew me by your Holy Spirit to do what you desire of me.
But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. (Galatians 5:18 )
Holy Spirit, lead me so that I am no longer under law but under grace. Thank you.
Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:19-21)
Holy Spirit, please help me recognize the works of the flesh in my life and repent of them.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
Holy Spirit, help me live these out day by day in the work place and wherever I am. Thank you.
And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. (Galatians 5:24)
Jesus, help me today to take up my cross and follow you.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. (Galatians 5:25)
Holy Spirit, lead me and guide me today — help me seize every opportunity you give me. Thank you.
Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. (Galatians 5:26)
Father, I want to be a man of peace — I pray for this especially in the work place where I spend so much of my time. Thank you.
