Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty. Cover Your beloved with Your holiness, O Lord. Lead me in the path of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Take me to the sweet depth of Your heart through the journeys I embark on in Your word. Make me to follow You even if the road I travel is unfamiliar and sometimes a bit scary to my senses. Vanquish all fear with the perfect love with which You sustain my soul. Nourish my spirit with truth. Replenish my heart with the peace of Your presence. Make me holy, Lord, because You are holy. May I reflect Your goodness in the smallest details of my life. Under the treasured truth of 1 John 4:18 and the authority of Christ, I set these prayers as a fragrant offering before You, O God.
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.
For fear has to do with punishment,
and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
1 John 4:18, ESV
