Tender and merciful are Your commands, O God. Lead me, Your beloved child, to follow in Your ways despite the difficulty of the path I might be on. Keep my steps steady when the road is bumpy with criticism from without and from within. Keep me steadfast when the way is clouded by the deceiver. Keep my spirit revived when endurance is challenged by heavy burdens. May my heart rest in gratitude because You do not leave me to fight any battle alone. You do not forsake me to make my own way in the wilderness. Jesus, the One whose love I can utterly depend upon, hold me, protect me, fulfill me as I entrust my soul to You every single day of this life journey. Mark my steps with devotion. Stamp my heart with trust. Intertwine my spirit with Yours for all of eternity. Under the familiar truth of Psalm 24:3-5 and the authority of Christ Jesus, these prayers are set forth as incense in the house of my God.
