To all who received him, to those who believe in his name, he gave the right to become children of God -- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. -- John 1:12-13 MY PRAYER: Father, thank you for including me in Your family. May my life reflect Your influence, character, mercy, holiness, compassion, righteousness, and love. I wish to be more like You, my Father. So just as I was born into Your family by the power of the Holy Spirit, please fill me with Your Spirit so that I will more closely reflect You in all I do and say this day. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
