Sweet and tender Father in heaven, be everything to Your servant that I am terribly lacking. Be my healer in seasons of sickness. Be my promise-keeper in times of doubt. Be my companion in the long days of loneliness. Be my sustenance in seasons of famine. Be my strength in moments of weakness. Be my protector in the wages of battle. Be my source when all has gone dry around me. And above all, be my salvation manifested in divine love which renders my soul incorruptible. I look to You as the One who can meet every need. I seek Your heart, O God, to engulf my own. I rest in the gratitude that You see me as I will be and not as I currently am. Under the majestic beauty of Colossians 1:17 and the authority of Christ, I offer these prayers as a sweet fragrance to my holy King.
And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Colossians 1:17, ESV
