Father of the redeemed and free,
we pray to be on guard against
any seduction that will leads us
again into a yoke of slavery.
Thanks be to you, Lord Jesus Christ,
whose Spirit helps us to eagerly await
the hope of righteousness
which motivates us to become
one another’s loving servants.
We pray that we may be like fruitful trees,
bearing the fruit of the Holy Spirit:
love, joy, peace patience, kindness, generosity and self-control.
Every step of the way, guide us Holy Spirit,
into a life of humble service,
conceit, competition and envy,
for your people’s blessing,
and your glory.
