Recognizing The Giver Of Spiritual Gifts

Almighty and Gracious Father, You are the source of all good and perfect gifts. I stand in awe of Your endless wisdom and unending love. Even when I struggle to understand the depth of Your divine generosity, Your Word reminds me of the manifold spiritual gifts that You bestow upon Your children.

As I journey through life, I often encounter challenges that test my faith and stretch my abilities. However, I am comforted by the knowledge that You, my God, are the giver of spiritual gifts. You endow us with diverse abilities for the edification of Your church and for Your glory. With a heart open to Your will, I yearn to receive and utilize these spiritual gifts.

In times of uncertainty and doubt, I lean on Your understanding, O Lord. Even when I am unsure of my abilities or the path to take, I am confident that Your Spirit is guiding me.
