Precious is Your beautiful name, great and mighty King of all creation. Hold the heart of Your sweet child so that I can find refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Place me in the palm of Your hand when the stresses of life weigh in on me, making me collapse beneath the pressure. For in You, I am lifted up. In You, I have the strength to endure with joy. In You, I have the patience to wait beneath the shade of divine love’s wings. Protect me, Lord, from the scorching heat of adversity, doubt and confusion sent by the enemy to dehydrate my soul. Remind me daily to drink my fill of Your living water as I seek You in prayer, worship You in reverence and follow You in devotion. Mystify me with zeal that intensifies, yet does not burn; and enlarges but does not burst. In the beautiful majesty of Your Word in Psalm 119:81-83, 88 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I set these prayers as a fragrant offering to my God of glory.
My soul longs for your salvation;
I hope in your word.
My eyes long for your promise;
I ask, “When will you comfort me?”
For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke,
yet I have not forgotten your statutes….
In your steadfast love give me life,
that I may keep the testimonies of your mouth.
Psalm 119:81-83, 88, ESV
