Prayer For Fruits Of The Holy Spirit
Be pleased to infuse in us
the fruit of benignity,
that we may willing relieve
our neighbor's necessities;
the fruit of goodness,
that we may be benevolent toward all;
the fruit of longanimity,
that we may not be discouraged by delay
but may preserve in prayer;
and the fruit of mildness,
that we may subdue every rising of ill temper,
stifle every murmur,
and repress the susceptibilities of our nature
in all our dealings with our neighbor.
Eternal Love of the Father and the Son,
kindly bestow on us
the fruit of charity,
that we may be united to You by Divine love;
the fruit of joy,
that we may be filled with holy consolation;
the fruit of peace,
that we may enjoy tranquility of soul;
and the fruit of patience,
that we may endure humbly
everything that may be opposed to our own desires.
Lord help me to find my joy in you. God, you are the source of all good things and a life that draws its strength from you is a life of true and deep joy. Even in the tough times help me to rejoice in your goodness and your plan for my life. And, help me to seek you, as the well that never runs dry so that my joy can overflow into the lives of everyone I meet.
Lord help me to fix my eyes on the love you share with me every day. And, may I be reminded of the grace and mercy you extended through your son as I go through my life. Lord, may I look to your love as a guide to love others. And not just those who are easy to love. But God give me your eyes so that I may see all your children the way you do. Help me please God to love myself the way that you love me. For I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
0 God who has prepared good things for those
that love You, pour into our hearts the Spirit of
filial affection; so that loving you in all things
and above all things we may obtain your
promises which exceed all desires, through
Christ our Lord. Amen.
0 Holy Spirit, Substantial Love of the Father
and the Son, I profoundly adore you, and
humbly beseech you to fill my heart with
Divine Charity-your first and most necessary
Fruit-so that I may be enabled to love you, my
God, above all things for your own sake, and my
neighbour for the love of you. May this precious
Fruit continue to grow and ripen daily in my
heart till it attains to maturity and perfection in
your blessed kingdom, where the God of love
and the love of God reign for ever more. Amen.
Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that by grace through faith I am Your child. Thank You, that I have been positioned in Christ, and placed in union with Him, Who is the true and living Vine.
Thank You, that I have been covered in His righteousness and that Your desire for me is that I am fully conformed into the very image and likeness of Your dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, as I abide in Him, and He in me, so that His very character and nature may be gradually formed in me.
Help me I pray, to be spiritually fruitful and to abide in Jesus day by day. Thank You, that as the heavenly Gardener You are graciously pruning me through the truth of Your Word and shaping me into the person You would have me be.
Cut away anything in my life that hinders my spiritual growth, and help me to learn the lessons that You would teach me, so that I may grow into the likeness of the Lord Jesus and bear much fruit to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, we pray that You would protect the hearts and minds of all our children and deepen the faith in the Lord Jesus that has blossomed in each of our kids, in an world where the truth of the gospel of Christ is ridiculed and rejected.
We pray that they would mature in the faith, grow in grace and develop in their spiritual understanding. We pray that they would be be equipped to stand firm in their faith, make wise choices, live a life that is well pleasing to You and be adequately equipped to give an answer for the hope that they have in Christ.
We pray that our kids would develop the godly character traits and beautiful fruit of the Spirit that come from a heart that is sold out for Jesus and will depend on Him in all things.
Protect them we pray, from the enticements and entanglements of the world, and we ask that the good work that You have been pleased to start in each life will be completed in the day of Christ Jesus, to Your praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus' name,
