Heavenly Father, please enliven our faith. May your Spirit bring about good works in us that reflect who you are. Please stir up in us a love for others that is generous and not afraid to suffer some loss. May we give joyfully; may we serve willingly; may we work as though for you and not for man; may we hunger for more and more of your transforming word. Grow our desire for you. Help us to look at Jesus and know him as our wonderful saviour, our dear brother, our gracious king, and may our love for him motivate all we do.
