Our Father in heaven, giver of all good gifts, may Your abundant blessings cover the gaps in Your servant’s life. Bring any parched areas to new life by flooding my being with Your living water. Let old wounds be healed in new ways by Your tenderness. Take the broken pieces and make a beautiful mosaic that testifies to Your abundant grace. Above all, mighty God, let my service to You be received as a love offering which draws intimacy between us. May my deep empathy be filled with gratitude. I am willing to hurt for what hurts Your heart, God, in order that I might serve You more completely. Re-wire my soul so that I can fully receive the power that only comes from Your resurrection. Under the blessing of Psalm 71:8 and the authority of my Savior Jesus Christ, I lay these prayers upon the altar of God, rejoicing that You hear my pleas and know my distress.
