(Based on Galatians 5:22-23)

 

Lord, fill me with your Holy Spirit.

 

I receive your love,

and release my bitterness

I receive your joy,

and release my unhappiness

I receive your peace,

and release my anxiety

I receive your patience,

and release my impulsiveness

I receive your kindness,

and release my indifference

I receive your goodness,

and release my ungodliness

I receive your faithfulness,

I receive your gentleness,

and release my severity

I receive your self-control,

and release my self-indulgence
