Today’s Prayer

Father in heaven who knows Your loved one by my true name, let Your Holy Spirit engulf the vacant recesses of my heart with Your glorious, incorruptible love. Mighty God, with Your strong arm, be the defender of my cause, my refuge in the storm, the lifter of my soul. Gratitude floods my spirit as I turn from the darkness of life’s confusing situations to embrace Your light. Create in me a pure heart, Lord, as You equip me to cast all of my anxieties on You. I beseech You for relief, O Lord. I welcome Your renewal. I enjoy Your sweet replenishment as I accept Your refinement of the soul. May the name of Jesus be glorified in suffering, magnified in pain, lifted high in thanksgiving and praised in splendid hope. Reveal to me, O God, the unchangeable character of Your purpose in a purposeless world that is ever changing. Let me be anchored to the promises of Christ as revealed to me in Your word. Under the promise of Hebrews 6:17-20 and the authority of Christ Jesus, keeper of my heart, lover of my soul, I lift these prayers toward heaven filled with awe that You hear the quiet desperation of my soul, O God.

So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath,  so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.  We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,  where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 6:17-20
