O great God of my strength, be nearer to me than ever before. May the majesty of Your fulfilling love overshadow any sorrow of the soul. Let the abundance of Your grace cascade like an avalanche into the moments of my days. Let the beauty of Your truth eclipse any afflictions of the heart that distract and weigh me down. Put me in the center of Your protective army when I suffer from an emotional tornado that blows me off course. Keep me steady, Lord, as You turn my face toward You, comforting me with the tender touch of eternal love and ministering to me with the whisper of: “all is going to be alright.” Through the aches of my heart, I strain to hear the confident assurance of Your tender voice. Pull me into Your embrace, my Savior, because I need You now. Under the promise of Jeremiah 7:23 and the blessed authority of Christ Jesus, I lift up my heart in prayer to You, Father.
But this command I gave them: ‘Obey my voice, and I will be your God,
and you shall be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you,
that it may be well with you.’
Jeremiah 7:23, ESV
