Gracious Lord, please help us to hear your word and listen to it. Please break down all pride that rears its head in our hearts, and pay careful attention to your word and our walk. May we serve you whole-heartedly and not drift into self-centredness or apathy. May we long to see you transform every corner of our life to become more and more like Christ. Keep our ears attentive to your rebuke or correction as we read your word. Please keep growing our trust in Christ that we may not loose heart and drift into godless thoughts and actions. May we ever long to serve, please, and be with you, our gracious Lord and heavenly Father.
