The fruit of self-control

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” (John 14:15-17 ESV)

Если любите Меня, соблюдите Мои заповеди. И Я умолю Отца, и даст вам другого Утешителя, да пребудет с вами вовек, Духа истины, Которого мир не может принять, потому что не видит Его и не знает Его; а вы знаете Его, ибо Он с вами пребывает и в вас будет. (Иоанна 14:15-17 Russian)

O LORD my God ~ thank you for the breath of life on this another new day. Dear Father, give us the peace of Christ that transcends all earthly ideas about peace of mind, soul and body. As faithful followers of Christ daily receive blessings from your beloved Son, grant us greater awareness of the abiding presence of the Spirit in true believers who are exerting efforts to obey the teachings of Christ Jesus. Forgive us of sins of our tongue that have slipped out and hurt another person. Help us O Lord, to practice the fruit of self-control. Deliver us from our enemies who are daily at work to bring down those who lift up Christ as Lord. Please answer this prayer according to the good and perfect will of Jesus, Amen.
