Spirit of life and love, blow into our lives.
Empower us, fill us with hope, lead us to be people of of the Spirit.
Though our spirits may be willing, sometimes our flesh is weak,
and our actions show the power of the works of the flesh.
Idolatry, impurity, envy, anger, dissension, carousing, licentiousness...
things that try to take control of our lives.
In your grace, strengthen us,
so that the Fruits of the Spirit would flow through our actions and our lives.
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control..
help us make these the touchstones of our lives.
We pray in the name of the Risen Christ.
