Make me a good student…today

O, LORD, I long to trust You enough to be fully myself with You. When I are real with You…without pretense or pride or excuse, I know You are able to bring out the best in me: even the very gifts You have planted in my soul.

Help me be a good student and an avid learner to be a better image of Your son, my LORD and Savior, because I pray this in Jesus’ matchless and wonderful name. Amen.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” (John 15:13–15)
