My Father in heaven who sources me with all that I truly need, fulfill the heart and mind of Your sweet child as I continue to walk in the ways of the Lord. May my tired steps remain steadfast with the perseverance supplied by Your Spirit. May my tread be made light by the joy of Your presence, Lord. Listen to the passionate pleas of Your loved one as I desire the refinement of my soul necessary for deep, revealing intimacy with You. Yet, I struggle with adversity’s intense flames of hardship. Grant me glimpses of heaven’s purpose, Lord, that I might gain the clarity which will carry me through life’s pain in such a way as to bring You glory. Let the clouds of confusion dissipate once in a while so that I can view the beauty of Your throne to which I live in allegiance. In trust, I will walk. In faith, I will heal. In love, I will grow. In time, I will know even as I am now dearly known. Under the word of 1 Corinthians 13:12 and the blessed authority of Christ Jesus, I set these prayers at the feet of the One my soul adores.
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully,
even as I have been fully known.
1 Corinthians 13:12, ESV
