Father, Your perfect love is the soothing balm that covers the wounds of my aching heart. Surround Your loved one with assurance that You see, that You care, and that You will make things right. The spirit inside of me languishes in a dryness of misunderstanding Your ways. Hold me close in the darkness so that the iridescent light of Your presence infuses my soul with the energy which I lack. Grant me refuge from being haunted by weariness as You lift me up to the quiet place You have reserved for the two of us. What unfathomable grace is this -that I can run to You through the work of the cross. Romance me as only You can, Jesus, so that I may love others with the abundance with which You have loved me. I lift high the holiness of Your name, O Lord. I honor You with my whole heart as I give You access to my empty. Under the promise of beauty in Job 11:17-18 and the authority of Christ Jesus, my glorious King, these prayers are set as incense before the throne of God.
