Dear God and Father,
We know that what you say is true and that in fact Jesus is the truth, which you sent to this earth. When he speaks of our sin he always speaks correctly. Help us to accept that we continuously need your grace and the forgiveness you offer through Christ.
Help us also to avoid any kind of spiritual elitism. In other words, help us to avoid any kind of thinking that we are too good or too smart to need a simple, childlike faith in Christ to be saved.
Finally, please give us those rivers of living water that Christ said would flow from within us thanks to the work of your Holy Spirit.
In Jesus Christ,
