Precious Prince of peace, rescue the heart of Your loved one for I am in danger of falling into the trap set by the enemy. Shield me from his flaming arrows of criticism from others. Grant me the peace of a heavenly perspective which will allow me to meet every evil with good from Christ’s Spirit inside of me. Show me the horizon of eternity’s beauty that radiates from my soul through faith in You, Lord, and trust in Your promises. Shape me into a vessel of love, grace and hope that ministers to the world’s aches and combats the forces of darkness. Strengthen me to love the unlovable so that the enemy does not gain a foothold with which to bring my focus back to myself. Under the grace of Genesis 1:4 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I set these prayers at Your feet O Lord.
