Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
(1 Corinthians 13:4)
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
(3 John 1:4)
