Almighty God, unfold Your purpose in the life of the one that You love. Take me to the stream of living water where I can drink deeply and find the rest that my soul craves. Shadow me beneath the protective covering of Your wings so that I can find refuge against the raging storms of life. Break forth the dawn of deeper revelation of Your word, Your grace and Your sustaining love. Make me a mighty Kingdom warrior as You draw out the strength in my spirit necessary to vanquish the enemy and destroy all strongholds set up against the knowledge of Christ. Take captive my thoughts so that my soul is focused on all that is good, noble, worthy and of God. Deepen the joy experienced in Your presence, Lord, as You pull me into loving worship. Center my thoughts on You, O God, for I am too easily distracted by the world around me. Under the treasure of 2 Corinthians 10:5 and the authority of Christ, these prayers are a fragrant offering to the King of Kings.
We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion
raised against the knowledge of God,
and take every thought captive to obey Christ,
2 Corinthians 10:5, ESV
