My Father in heaven, maker of days, let me rejoice in Your manifold blessing. In the power of Your holy presence, hold Your servant tenderly in Your hands. Stroke my heart with revelation from Your Word which will utterly transform me and shatter the disillusionment that the devourer of my soul shackles me with. In freedom, let Your beloved experience the fullness of divine love, the power of holy truth and the hope of pure faith. Gather up the tears within the reservoir of my heart, Lord, and pour them out through the fingertips of grace so that even I catch a glimpse of the beauty within the suffering. May the waterfalls of heaven radiate that overflowing beauty by being filled with the tears of Your saints. For nothing is in vain when done in the name of Christ. And so, enable Your child to surrender; to let go; to submit; to embrace; so that there is more of You and less of me as I continue upon this journey toward home. Under the blessed truth I am enraptured by in James 1:12 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I lift these prayers toward heaven in the name of the Lord that I love.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial,
for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life,
which God has promised to those who love him.
James 1:12, ESV
