12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
One of the greatest gifts that God has given us is the presence of his Spirit in us for those who believe in the Lord Jesus. The Holy Spirit is the one who helps us to see the truth about ourselves and exposes the emptiness of the justification and the excuses we so often give ourselves. It’s so easy to give yourself a “free pass” when all others must pay. The Holy Spirit also gives us power to live after God as we desire to live a life that is pleasing to God. All of this is motivated by an incredible love for us and an intimate knowledge of who we can be both in this world and in worlds to come (Ps. Dale).

Pray for spiritual revolution; for God to soften the hearts of Bhutanese people and the King towards the gospel of Jesus. And pray for God to grant us boldness to share his Gospel.
