A Prayer for Abiding in Christ

Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. (John 15:4)

Life-sustaining Lord,
keep me connected to You
as I live in the activities
and relationships of this day.

May the life in me
be Your life,
and the fruit from my life
be Your fruit.

May I be transformed
from within by You,
so that, growing in You,
I might become more like You.

Take me with my strengths
and my weaknesses,
my areas of brokenness and sin,
as well as my wholeness and victories.

In all things, have Your way
in me for Your greatest glory.
Let Your kingdom come
and let Your will be done.
Amen.
