Heavenly Father, please work in us as we prepare material for the training event in December. As we think about how to help the students engage well with your word, please be engaging our own hearts too. Help us to behold your glory and see the wonder of your salvation in Christ. Fill us with joy in what you have done for us. Convict us by your Spirit of our sin and stir up repentance; drive us to Christ to see his incredible triumph; fuel our faith in his overflowing righteousness; work even in our failing flesh that we may see your transforming, life-giving power, even now while we wait for the glorious day of Christ and our resurrection into your new creation.
