Gracious God of all eternal things, make Your dwelling within the heart of Your loved servant. Pierce me with the extravagance of Your tenderness so that I am comforted whenever I am in physical or spiritual distress. Take me to the deep cavern of compassion that exists only in Your word and truth. Help me to glean power from that compassion which will enable me to minister to others in need to the glory of Your amazing name. Hold me up. Hold me close. Hold me tight so that the enemy does not gain a foothold. For You are my source of life now and always. You are my strength and my deliver for all days to come. You are my healer and my refuge when the storms of life overwhelm my heart. Under the firm foundation of 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I lift these prayers to Your heavenly throne, O God.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our affliction,
so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction,
with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4, ESV
