My Father in heaven, whose name is an umbrella of sweet protection over the lives of those He loves, protect me in a powerful way as I face the onslaught of darkness. Shield me from hailstones of hassles in my daily endeavors. Keep me in the stronghold of Your presence so that I can find refuge from condemnation, apathy and temptation. Speak to me in the tenderness of Your quiet space so that I can unlock the treasure of solace for my soul. Above all, enable Your love to penetrate any barrier left standing in my heart so that I am completely and utterly Yours. Let the name of my God stir ecstasy in my soul. Let my exhilaration be spent in searching the deep richness of the heart of Your love, O Lord. For then all of my illusions will be evaporated so that the splendor with which You enrapture me can finally be liberated in the way I live my life. Under the strength of 1 Chronicles 16:29 and the authority of Christ Jesus, these prayers are set upon the altar of my King.
