Great and mighty is Your name, my Father in heaven. For You and only You can wrap the beginning around every ending. Usher new beginnings in the life of Your beloved, Lord. Fill me to overflow with Your resurrection power in my thoughts, my actions and my words. Blossom the garden of my heart once again as You water my soul with living water. Replenish the strength of my body by the life-giving touch You so tenderly caress me with. Holy God make me even more aware of Your intense love so that I can be lifted high above life’s pains as I soar upon Your wings of forgiveness, grace and divine, passionate love. Blessed are all who call upon Your name in time of distress, Jesus. Let the heart of Your loved one rejoice and be glad at Your coming. Under the rock of 1 Peter 4:13 and the resurrection authority of Christ, I place these prayers into the hands of the living God.
But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings,
that you may also rejoice
and be glad when his glory is revealed.
1 Peter 4:13, ESV
