Lifting up Your holy name, O God, let Your favor fall fresh upon Your ministering warrior. Flame into fire the heat of Your calling in my heart so that I pursue You above all else. Enable me to lay down upon Your altar the lesser things which have enticed me to pursue them. Only You are worthy of pursuit, God. Only Your love can satisfy the deep empty that plagues my soul. Help me to realize the purpose in pain even as I trust You in challenges so that I can worship You through it all. Open doors which will allow me to grow in responsibility and finish the work that You have begun in me. Soften my heart with Your grace until my spirit is unified with Yours in new and exciting ways. Resurrect my weary heart, Lord. Breathe new life into me so that I can live fully for You. Under the majestic blessing of Psalm 31:1 and the authority of Christ, these prayers are set as an offering at Your feet, O God.
In you, O Lord, do I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
in your righteousness deliver me!
Psalm 31:1, ESV
