Dear Lord, I thank you for the promise of baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire. I acknowledge that I am not worthy to even loosen the strap of your sandals, but I pray that you would baptize me in your Spirit and refine me with your fire. I desire to be filled with your power and to live a life that glorifies you. May your Spirit guide me and empower me to do your will. Thank you for your grace and mercy. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
