Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Col 3:16-17 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, give me strength to override my desire for what I want so that I can allow You–Your Wisdom, Word, and Spirit–to be active and in control in my life. Reveal to me anything that prevents me from doing this. Help me follow Your leadership in everything I do and say, teaching and being a living example of Your redemption, power, and love in a human life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
