Dear Lord, help me to be like a fresh wine skin, ready to receive the new wine of your teachings and blessings. May I not be rigid or stuck in my ways, but open and pliable to your will. Help me to be preserved and strengthened by your spirit, so that I may pour out your love and grace to others. Amen.
