Your word says that a meek and quiet spirit is of great value to You. I find it difficult to humble myself at times, and to let meekness and gentleness guide my words, my behavior. Too many times to count, I have uttered harsh words to those whom you have given me to care for. I’ve allowed prideful, self-centered thoughts to harden in my heart. And I don’t like this.
Pride, harsh words, hardness of heart are not my truth. My truth is found in You alone; You who are Love and all things pure and perfect. Lord, I pray that I might be loving and gentle like You. I ask that You would create in me a meek and quiet spirit. Mary, our Blessed Mother, I ask you for the grace to increase in humility, in peacefulness, and in living each day in a way that honors the Truth of who I am in Christ.
In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
Rather, let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which is very precious in God’s sight. – 1 Peter 3:4
