Lord, I rejoice in the days that You have given me for Your name is holy and Your ways are perfect. Let Your shaping presence mold the soul of Your servant in such a way that I conform to Your Son’s image. Bring me to completion for You are the King who delights to perfect Your creation. Shatter all illusions of self that hinder me from accurately seeing myself as You see me. Demolish the lies that I have agreed to by making clear to me the majesty of truth. Inspire Your beloved as You use me in amazing ways to dazzle others with the glory that is Yours alone. Tangibly restore me to sweet intimacy with You as I travel the road before me with the energy supplied by hope in Christ. Under the truth of Romans 15:13 and the authority of Jesus, my one and only, I pray, O Lord.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Romans 15:13, ESV
