Today’s Prayer

Great God of this world, I thank You for chasing away the enemy so that Your loved one can draw close to Your heart. For I am lost and lonely without You, easily frustrated and imperfectly emotional. Bring me into the blessed intimacy of Your presence as I seek to walk in line with the way You lead me. Keep the claim You have upon my heart alive and active through Your word. Build up my faith in love even in regard to those most difficult to love. Empower me to extend grace even when I am not appreciated. Equip me to show love even when I do not feel loved. Make me to speak kindly even when I am being persecuted. May I do all things unto You for I am Your servant, not bound to the approval of people but living under the grace and mercy of God. Under the beautiful reminder of Colossians 2:6-7 and the authority of Christ, these prayers are a fragrant offering to You, O God.

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord,
so walk in him,
 rooted and built up in him and established in the faith,
just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
Colossians 2:6-7, ESV
