Today’s Prayer

Father, You are my master designer. Your gentle yet powerful touch is healing to my soul as well as my body. Touch me with Your grace in the moments in which I falter. Shield me from the pain and weakness that might impair me from accomplishing the necessary tasks designed for me in my service to You. In every small detail of this life, may Your nearness to me shoulder the burdens as You radiate Your strength into me. Grant me the rejuvenating rest my body needs when I have inadvertently taken on too much. Nudge my fingers open, Lord, so that I can let go of that which You have not asked me to hold on to. Remind me to look to You for my assignments, not to be deceived by my own heart strings as they are pulled in many directions. Surround me with Your heavenly host as my protective escort when I traverse the landscape of the day before me. For where I am the weakest, Lord, I invite Your Spirit to take control, enabling me to navigate my soul to the higher ground of heaven’s perspective.  Under the promise of Psalm 73:25-26 and the authority of Jesus, healer and comforter of my soul, these prayers are offered to the One and Only God of all creation.

Whom have I in heaven but you?
    And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Psalm 73:25-26, ESV
