Beautiful is Your holy presence, O God, as I lean into You during times of distress and deep need. Let Your strength envelope the soul of Your glimmering treasure that lies deep within me. Infuse me with the radiant grace that only comes from Your Spirit which has power to draw out the essence of life You have planted in me through faith in Christ. Equip me to let go of all desire to know every detail of Your plan when You have deemed it best to remain hidden. Help me, Lord, not to fear the hidden aspects of Your will for me. May I fall into Your arms in a trusting embrace for moment to moment living. Heal me from the stings of yesterdays and the anxieties of tomorrow as You lead me step by step through the messy battlefield of life. Help me to see what You desire me to see, both in myself and in others, so that I remain true to my identity as a child of God who can be loved because I am Your beloved. Under the mystery of Song of Solomon 6:3 and the authority of Christ Jesus, these prayers I lift to God on high.
I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine;
he grazes among the lilies.
Song of Solomon 6:3, ESV
