Jesus, You are the author and finisher of my faith. As You begin Your work in me, You teach me to set my mind on things above and on the Holy Spirit. You empower me to end a mind set on what I want or what might please others.
You start my mind remembering what I need to remember, such as Your mercy, forgiveness, and love which extends all the way to Calvary. You are the author of the sound mind that forgets what You have forgotten like forgiven sin carried away at the cross and the shame of imperfections which are covered by Your love.
Lord, You have begun a good work in me and will continue it until the day of Your return when I will see You face to face and will be like You.
I could never thank You or praise You enough for all Your works. Let Your name be glorified forever and ever. Amen!
