Glorious God, my mighty King, overcome Your blessed child with spiritual receptivity that will holy align me with Your vision for this life. Equip me to carry out the tasks assigned by Your hand with grace and fervency unmatched in the designated time and place of Your holy calling. Tune my ears to Your voice and my heart to Your purposes. Shore up the boundaries of my soul so that the enemy does not needlessly inflict me with a multitude of distracting problems. May the blood of Jesus, my loving Savior, shield me from the penetrating gaze of the one who devours. Surround me with the light of Your presence, Father, because darkness has no power where the light exists. In trust, I will step into Your territory. In truth, I will rest in prayer. In grace, I will breathe each gifted breath of life. And in hope, I will remain steady in Christ. Your love, Lord, is the nourishment that will sustain me for the journey. Under the beauty of Your word in John 1:4-5 and the authority of Christ Jesus, these prayers are laid at Your feet, O God.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:4-5, ESV
