12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

I am amazed at the gifts that You have bestowed upon me. Thank You for the gift of wisdom. I am now able to gain Your insight and apply these teachings in my life. Your words of knowledge has helped me grow so much in the faith. You have strengthened my faith, each day that I seek You. You continually pour into my soul and give me guidance. Thank You for opening my mouth and giving me words to speak. I rely on the Spirit, oh Lord. Without the Spirit, I can do nothing. Work through me Lord and help me show kindness towards everyone around me. Also, help others that are seeking You and have not experienced these gifts yet. Help them take the extra steps needed, in order to experience these spiritual gifts for themselves. I know that You can do all things. I trust in You Lord. I love You. Amen.
