My powerful Creator who loves me from heaven to the depths of my soul, pour out an abundance that washes over me, cleansing me from the impurities of this world’s drama. Make my spirit sparkle with the radiance of truth found in Your Holy Word. Drive me far from the fruitless joys of a fallen world into the joyous inheritance of Christ that removes all restraint. Hedge the garden of my soul with the protective holiness of Your daily presence. Let Your will be done as You align my desire with Your very own. Help me to honor You in the way that I live, Lord. For I desire to be an imitator of Christ in words, actions and thoughts in order that I might live a life fully pleasing to You. I look unto You to direct my heart toward Your love until no other pursuit satisfies my soul. Under the word of truth in Ephesians 5:1-2 and the authority of Jesus, I set these prayers into Your tender and mighty hands, O God.
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love,
as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us,
a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Ephesians 5:1-2, ESV
