Daily Prayer Focus: Galatians 5: 22-24
By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.
Holy God, help us to live by the spirit. We pray for others and ourselves today. In particular, we pray for:
- People whose thoughts are troubled
- People searching for meaning in their lives
- People mourning the loss of loved ones
- People who are chronically ill
Ever-present God, look upon us with compassion. Have mercy on your people. Have mercy on your world. Amen.
