The acts of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. As I did before, I warn you that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
Galatians 5:19-25 NIV
Holy Spirit, thank You for guiding me as I meditate on God’s commands and enabling me by the Power of Your Spirit to do His will. I am no longer a slave to the sins of my flesh. Help me to serve others with love and treat them with dignity and respect. You have taken the yoke of slavery from my shoulders and given me Your yoke, for it is gentle and lowly; I humble myself before Your Throne of Grace.
Please help me extend the same grace You have given me to others. Thank You for giving me the breath of life, a gift from God. As I sit quietly in Your Presence Lord, place my hand on my heart, and focus on my breath. May I breathe in the fruits of Your Spirit, Your love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control -and breathe out the Acts of Flesh, which are sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the likes. No one can inherit the Your Kingdom who lives in the likes of these.
Dear Lord, I repent of the things, not of Your Holy Spirit; I need Your help and the help of godly men and women. When I fall, shut the mouth of my accusers who condemn me with guilt and shame. Instead, like a loving Father, You look upon me with mercy and compassion stretching Your hand to help me back up. Thank you, and I know I will, for not turning away from me in disgust because You know my flesh is weak, but in my weakness is Your Power. Thank You, Jesus, I bless Your Name, for it is in Your Name I pray, amen
