Blessed be Your name, O God, for You are worthy of adoration springing from the depths of true love. Shoulder the burdens that Your beloved servant carries. Increase my awareness of Your holy presence so I can be illuminated with truth in the midst of a world that gravitates toward lies. Let my anchored faith be the zero-gravity which allows me to float through life’s stresses on the wings of holy grace. Put on me a peace that passes understanding. Dress me with a righteousness that covers me in Christ. Mold me with a beauty that exemplifies Your glory. Let the deepest winds of my soul be blown in the direction of sin-banishing, Christ-glorifying, God-exalting effervescent joy in the One who created me. Take me to the land of discovery where delight abounds and faith increases in newness. Praise You, Lord, for Your intense compassion for those that You love. Under the mighty word of Isaiah 49:13 and the authority of Christ Jesus, these prayers are placed into Your care, O God.
Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth;
break forth, O mountains, into singing!
For the Lord has comforted his people
and will have compassion on his afflicted.
Isaiah 49:13, ESV
