Praying with Paul: 'Living in the Spirit'

Ephesians 5:15-18

Dear Father,

Help me to be careful about how I live. May I behave not as an unwise person but as a wise one.

Help me make the most of every opportunity, because the days of this age are evil. I don't want to be foolish. I want to understand what the will of the Lord is.

May I never use or abuse alcohol or drugs, which would lead to an undisciplined and wasted life. Instead, let me be drunk with your Spirit.

In Jesus' name. Amen.
