Father God, holy one whom I adore, lift me up to gain the perspective I need in order to overcome the disillusionment of my soul. Part the clouds before the eyes of my heart as You keep me protected beneath the umbrella of Your authority when the storm rolls into my spirit. You have called me to “put on Christ” in the midst of the storm, Lord. For it is His voice alone that can calm the chaos of my soul. Forgive my forgetfulness as I linger in the territory of deceit which tempts me to find satisfaction in things contrary to You. Forgive Your beloved for hiding behind a facade, for defining myself by what I do, for dressing as if I could earn favor through outward appearance. Help me to seek You, God, for only You can dress me in robes of righteousness. Let me be willing to dress my soul with mercy and boldness for the truth. Let me be clothed in the pursuit of holy justice and compassionate sympathy reflective of Your heart. Above all, enable me to choose love as my adornment so that I can radiate the imperishable beauty of putting on Christ. May all who see me, Lord, actually see You in me. Under the majestic truth of Romans 13:14 and the authority of Christ Jesus, these prayers are my daily offering.
