__________ is a disciple of Christ — taught of the Lord and obedient to His will. Great is his/her peace and undisturbed composure. __________ is constantly renewed in the spirit of his/her mind — having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude — and is putting on the new nature — the regenerate self — created in God’s image, Godlike in true righteousness and holiness.
His/her life lovingly expresses truth in all things — speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly. __________ is enfolded in love, growing up in every way and in all things into Him, who is the Head, even Christ, the Messiah, the Anointed One. His/her mouth shall utter truth. __________ speaks excellent and princely things — the opening of his/her lips is for right things. All the words of his/her mouth are righteous. There is nothing contrary to truth or crooked in them.
__________ inclines his/her heart to Your testimonies, Father, and not to covetousness (robbery, sensuality, or unworthy riches). __________ does not love or cherish the world. The love of the Father is in him/her. __________ is set free from the lust of the flesh (craving for sensual gratification), the lust of the eyes (greedy longings of the mind), and the pride of life (assurance in his own resources or in the stability of earthly things). _________ perceives and knows the truth and that nothing false is of the truth.
__________ prizes Your wisdom, Father, and exalts it, and it will exalt and promote him/her. __________ attends to God’s Word, consents and submits to Your sayings. __________ keeps them in the center of his/her heart. For they are life to __________ and medicine to all his/her flesh. __________ keeps his/her heart with all diligence, for out of it flow the springs of life.
__________ will do nothing from factional motives, through contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends — or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility, does __________ regard others as better than himself/herself. __________ esteems and looks upon and is concerned not merely for his/her own interests, but also for the interests of others.
__________ lets this same attitude and purpose and humble mind be in him/her that was in Christ Jesus. Thank You, Father, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
