Help me to stay low, poor in spirit before you,
who considered yourself nothing before God
that I may be blessed, spiritually rich, and happy.
Let me mourn over my sins,
grant me a spirit of repentance
that I may be forgiven, touched by your grace,
and comforted when you lift my burdens.
Help me to walk in your gentle, sweet spirit,
and be kind and self-controlled,
that I may have your peace and security,
and be entrusted with your inheritance.
Put in me an insatiable hunger and thirst
to seek you, know you, and live right before you
that you may nourish me with all your goodness
and I may be completely satisfied in you.
Let me walk in mercy,
trusting in your promises
and sheltering under your deliverance,
that your loving kindness and mercy would overtake me.
Strengthen my heart to walk in purity,
staying on the paths of courage, integrity, and godly character
so that I may see your face clearly and know your closeness.
Let me be a peacemaker to express your heart,
brokering reconciliation, healing, and connection,
and have the joy and favor of being called your child.
Enable me to stand firm in faith,
doing what you have called me to do,
walking in love, courage, truth, and grace
that when persecution comes,
I would be spiritually alive,
my soul lit on fire for your glory,
experiencing your peace that transcends all understanding,
and enjoying your rewards when eternity comes.
I bless you Lord.
