My sweet and tender Father in heaven, sustainer of my very life, bring Your power into this life journey because I am Your beloved child who desires to please You. As Your treasured possession, may I be holy anointed to serve You with grace, to minister in mercy and to love supernaturally. Keep my heart teachable through trials so that nothing You ordain may be wasted. Bind the enemy from gaining any foothold through using past wounds or present hurts to distract me. Rather, reach Your ever-loving hands out to turn my face toward You, Jesus, and away from life’s continual drama. May Your peace unfold the layers of my soul as I grow in intimacy with You. Under the blessedness of Psalm 69:16 and the authority of Christ Jesus, my creator King, I place these prayers at Your feet, O God.
