Abba, Father, thank you for adopting as your children and for sending your Spirit into our hearts. Thank for making us heirs of your promises. Clothe us with Christ your Son. Enable us to serve one another humbly in love. Fill us with your Spirit so that our lives overflow with love, joy, peace, kindness, and goodness. Empower us to be forbearing, faithful, and gentle to all. Grant us self-control, and put to death our sinful passions and desires. Restrain us from being conceited and from provoking and envying others. Keep us in step with your Spirit, and visit us with your peace and mercy. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us and all our brothers and sisters. Amen.
