Dear Lord,

I come before you and ask for Your strength within me.
A strength not of the world but of Your kingdom.
To refrain from judgment and feast on love.
To push out greed and hold tight to joy.
To dispel pride and rise with humility.
To quell anger and rest in self control.
To shun greed and rest in giving.
To turn from power and embrace service.
To let go of resentment and rest in peace.
To push through fear and walk forwards in grace.
To run with faith, soar with forgiveness,
And allow your eternal strength to abide with me.

~ Amen
