Lord, our God, maker of all things new and keeper of our hearts, be with Your precious possession as I am in need of You. Enable me by the power of Your Holy Spirit to complete each divinely appointed task so that I am a vessel for Your glory. Through the assignments given me by Your mighty hand, may I recognize Your heart as You reveal Yourself to me in deeper ways. Protect me, O Lord, from the relentless scheming of the enemy as he seeks to devour my soul, to steal my joy and to destroy my hope. Though I traverse a land full of enemies, I will ever keep the eyes of my heart fixed upon You, Jesus. For in You, I can be energized rather than overwhelmed. I can experience growth through discouragement. I can rise from the ashes instead of collapse in the mire of emotional turmoil. Father, grant me the spiritual sight necessary to recognize Your dazzling blessings in the midst of fiery trials. Hold me close to You so that I am attune to Your beautiful whispers of guidance which reveal to me the next step of this journey. Let the faith You have given to me be ever increasing. Let the emptiness that plagues me find its fulfillment in Your presence. In glorious movement upon this path of life ordained by Your heart, I will step in praise, I will dance in grace, and I will sing in joy for the Lord is my God, the keeper of my heart, the lover of my soul, the source of my everything. Under the majestic joy in Your word of Psalm 20:5 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I lift these prayers to the One who hears the longings of my soul.
