Father, may we today experience again Messiah Jesus, the One who knows each of us better than we know ourselves. And, send Your Holy Spirit that we may trust that because He knows us to the very core of our being, He knows what we need to grow in our Christian faith and life, as well as in our witness to Him through our words and actions. We ask in the name of Jesus, the Same who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
