Father in heaven, I fall at Your feet pleading for the miracle of healing that my body and soul needs every minute of the day. Bring a healthy continuity to my steps in life as I seek You above all things. I ask You to lead me through the desert of loneliness that stretches before me like a threatening emptiness. Guide me to the outcrops of hidden treasures in Your word which can sustain my soul in the dry seasons. Lead me to the concealed springs of wisdom which can quench the thirst of my heart in confusing times. Help me not to lean on my own understanding which fails me, Lord, but to trust in Your Shepherd’s staff to show me the way. I acknowledge Your sovereignty in my life, Jesus, because You are my great stabilizing force. May the Spirit You have given me counsel me in all truth, seal me in all righteousness and guard me against all temptation. Under the blessed word of Proverbs 3:5-6 and the authority of my Sovereign King, Christ Jesus, I lay these prayers down.
