Lord of truth and love; increase my need to do YOUR will in my life. Let your will to be something I add on to my life but let it be my life. Let me feel deprived, weak, and lost except when I am doing YOUR will on earth as it is in heaven. Grant me eyes to see the needs all around me and the kingdom harvest to be brought in. Help me now Father to want to see YOUR attributes seen in me in word and deed. Bring your kingdom will into my mind and heart.
