To Be Filled with the Fruit of the Spirit

Dear God,

I come before you ready and willing to display your work in my life. I desire to be filled with the fruit of the Spirit, to be more like Christ in my thoughts, actions, and attitudes.

Fill me with the fruit of love, that I may love You with all my heart and love my neighbor as myself. Let Your love flow through me, touching the lives of those around me.

Fill me with the fruit of joy, that I may experience a deep and abiding joy in You, regardless of my circumstances. May my joy be a source of strength and hope to others.

Fill me with the fruit of peace, that I may be a peacemaker and bring reconciliation to conflicts. Let Your peace guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

Fill me with the fruit of forbearance, that I may be patient and long-suffering, even in the face of adversity. Help me to extend grace to others as You have extended it to me.

Fill me with the fruit of kindness, that I may show kindness and compassion to those I meet. Use me as an instrument of Your kindness in the world.

Fill me with the fruit of goodness, that I may live a life of moral integrity and righteousness, reflecting Your goodness to others.

Fill me with the fruit of faithfulness, that I may be faithful in my commitments and relationships, just as You are always faithful to Your promises.

Fill me with the fruit of gentleness, that I may approach others with humility, meekness, and a gentle spirit.

Fill me with the fruit of self-control, that I may exercise discipline over my desires and actions, aligning them with Your will.

Lord, I submit myself to your transformative work. Empty me of my selfishness, pride, and sin, and fill me with your Spirit. May these fruits become evident in my life, bearing witness to your presence within me. ask for your guidance and strength to cultivate these virtues daily, to your glory and for the benefit of others. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
