O God of glory, I rejoice in the day that You have made. Let Your servant be glad in the manifested beauty of Your creation all around me -in people, in nature, in words spoken and in memories made. Bring all languishing parts of my soul into alignment with Your Spirit for full replenishment and joyful rejuvenation. May the power of resurrection happiness push any earthly sorrow into the shadows. Keep me steady upon the plateau of eternal perspective so that I can fully and completely radiate the love of Christ in word and deed. Use me to plant seeds of the gospel which will be harvested to Your Kingdom glory. Increase my knowledge of You, O God. Unite me with Your Son through the bond of the Holy Spirit until all glory is given You through the life that I live. Under the power of Your word in Ephesians 4:13 and the authority of Jesus Christ, these prayers are my fragrant offering, Lord God Almighty.
until we all attain to the unity of the faith
and of the knowledge of the Son of God,
to mature manhood,
to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,
Ephesians 4:13, ESV
