O sweet, eternal husband to those who have chosen to call You by name, those who have accepted the great gift of Your saving love, come near to Your beloved child. I desire to be soothed by Your holy presence when the enemy convinces me that I am alone. I desire to be assured of my worth when the devils fire their darts of flaming condemnation at my heart. Brush away the ache that lingers by allowing me to hear whispers of love in Your holy word. Remind me who I truly am. Show me who I really belong to. The prowler of my soul threatens me with critical thoughts and casts me into fear’s gripping lies. Yet the truth that is in Christ renders his tricks to be failures. By the strength of Your love, guard me in this beautiful truth, lift me in grace and cover me in mercy. For You are my righteousness, Jesus. You are everything that I truly need. You are the One who defines who I am. Feed the hunger of my soul by letting me feast on the bread of life which is You. Under the treasured truth of John 6:35 and the authority of Jesus Christ, these prayers are my offering of love to You, my Lord and my King.
