The Struggle to be Perfect

Dear Lord,

Replace my foolish pursuit of perfection and replace it with the pursuit of God. While I am created in the image of You and You ask me to follow the example set by the new covenant, Jesus Christ, I know I will never be perfect. Striving for perfection is the worship of myself and not the worship of You. Instead, I strive to surrender my life to your will and to love others as You love me.

May your wisdom and strength guide me when I am weak and foolish.

Please send your Holy Spirit to guide me. I ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Based on 1 Corinthians 1:25...

For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength.
