Give us an unshakable faith. Make us un-offend-able. Make us dependable. Make us like You! Produce good fruits in us that will not wither in drought or be devoured by locus. Make us sweet like your Spirit, not bitter or hardened from the relentless attacks of the enemy. Bring us rain in our season. Reveal to us the reason for prolonged winters. Teach us the lessons that will bring lasting blessings. Make us a people stedfast, tried, and tested, purified and perfected, patient and enduring, and trustworthy with Your outpouring.
Make us like You, even if it comes with a wilderness, a Gethsemane, and a Judas. Give us Your heart, lay upon us Your burdens, show us Your sorrow for the lost and the hurting. May we share in Your grief as Your broken heart beats for a bride that’s deceived and a church that’s asleep. May we stand strong in the fight and sure in the faith, determined to be the one that eases Your pain with a love that is true, a devotion unmoved, and a thankful, graceful, faithful attitude.
We know we can trust You, you do not waver or lie, let us be the ones that You too can trust, that bring joy to Your heart and ease to Your mind. Make us Like You, loving, joyful, peaceful, longsuffering and kind. Help us press through the difficult times and maintain these fruits of goodness, faithfulness, genteelness, and patience. Let them be the stones that take down our giants. Give us Your words full of power and grace, truth and compassion, anointing and faith. Make us like You, tried and true, a heart that’s devoid of pride, selfishness, bitterness, envy, malice, strife, contention, or fear. Let our self die here, as we pick up our cross, follow after You and dare to make, “Make us like You”, our daily prayer.
