God of all comfort, bring serenity in the midst of chaos to Your image bearer. Raise me above the dangers of self-depreciation so that I am enabled to trust Your assessment of who I am. Use the most difficult challenges of life to shape me, grow me and make me into the person You desire me to be. I will pursue Your heart, Lord, because with relentless love You have pursued me. Shield me from deceptive schemes the enemy will try to trip me up with by using my emotions as weapons in the battle of confidence. May I accept Your leading no matter the direction, Jesus. In the territory of chaos, You are my peace. In the valley of confusion, You are my purpose. Set the goals of my heart to align with Your pre-ordained will even if You have to turn my heart inside out. I give You complete reign because in Your sovereignty, I will be stable. Under the beautiful word of comfort in Ephesians 2:10 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I humbly offer these prayers in trust to You, O God.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand,
that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10, ESV
