Father of light and of life, bring the blinding glory of Your love to rest upon my heart so that it radiates the gospel of Christ to those You have placed in my story. Remove all fear from my spirit until the devourer of my soul is rendered powerless. Let my steps be devoted solely to You as You grant me clarity concerning my calling. May Your Kingdom be furthered as You entrust me with the power of the gospel message. Let me live out the good news in word and in deed, Lord. Help me to distance myself from the petty pretensions of life in this world as I prioritize Your Kingdom message in every situation I encounter. Show me how to take my thoughts captive to You. Reveal to me how to become the ambassador of Christ I was anointed to be in every life role You have given me to play. Whether sibling, child, parent, spouse, friend or co-worker, enable me to view all relationships as gifts which You have passed to me in order that I may learn and grow in Christ-likeness. Under the treasure of 1 Peter 4:19 and the authority of Christ, I set these prayers upon Your altar, O King.
Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will
entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.
1 Peter 4:19, ESV
