My amazing and merciful God who blesses me with so much more than my mind can fathom, be ever closer to Your beloved. Lift me above the stormy waves that my soul might be anchored in Your perfect peace. May my ears be tuned to the gentle guidance of my shepherd’s voice when the path before me appears to split. Show me the straight and narrow way that leads to the destiny You mapped out for me long before time began. Fill my deep empty with Your divine love so that all my interactions become extensions of Your grace. Under the beautiful reminder of 1 Peter 4:8 and the authority of my pasture maker, Christ Jesus, these prayers are placed upon the altar of my God.
