I love the beatitudes, they are so packed with truth and blessing. All to help us have a better attitude.
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that you can make us more like your son Jesus. I pray that we will remember to have mercy and be humble in spirit. Use our writings to show others in how to get to know you and encourage broken spirits. I pray that others will come to know your gentle spirit. Fill us with your Holy Spirit and please give us all the right attitude or beatitudes.

In your precious name I pray, Amen
