Blessed Father, I have heard the command of Jesus to wait for the promise. I thank You for what has already been fulfilled in me. But my soul longs for the full possession, the fullness of the blessings of Christ. Teach me to wait on You. Teach me, each day, as I draw near to You, to wait for the Spirit. In the sacrifice of my own wisdom and my own will, may I learn to lie humbly before You so that Your Spirit may work with power. Teach me that as my life of self is laid before You day by day, the holy life will rise in power, and my worship will be in spirit and in truth. Amen.

I am a Christian in recovery from four decades of active addiction. I earned a B.S. in Psychology from Colorado Christian University, and I am currently earning an M.A. in Theological Studies at the same school. The main focus of my ministry is apologetics and doctrinal studies, and I am also involved in working with individuals struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues. To me, there is no "higher power" than Jesus Christ, who broke the chain of addiction in my life. View all posts by The Accidental Poet
