Mighty God who delights in the hearts of those devoted to You, find much delight in Your child today. Make Your beauty radiate from my soul in such a way that I am replenished as You change lives through the ministry entrusted to me in and outside of my home. Empower me by the presence of Your Holy Spirit to overcome human emotions that cloud my view of Your divine destiny. Rather, may my emotions be submissive to Your Spirit in all of my reactions to life’s drama. Above all, quiet me in Your love when all other loves fall short. Rejoice over me with singing when the way before me is silent. Delight in me when criticism tries to steal the joy You have placed in my heart. Under the beautiful word of Zephaniah 3:17 and the authority of Christ, these prayers are lifted to Your ears, O God.
The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
Zephaniah 3:17, ESV
