My Father who sees the deepest needs of Your loved ones, hold me up in my times of desperation. Lead me to the wellspring of joy that constantly satisfies my soul eternally because it draws from salvation’s completed work upon the cross. As a sunflower stretches tall with its face turned toward the sun, may my spirit stretch tall as the eyes of my heart are perpetually turned toward the Son. May the seeds of truth embedded in my soul through relationship to Christ feed the multitude of hungry sheep in search of hope’s flavor to keep them alive. I invite You, Lord, to use every part of my life to Your Kingdom purpose. Let the bright petals of joy bring delight to others through my service. Let the stem of righteousness sustain me in my calling as I emit the gorgeous fragrance in Christ that You desire. Let the blossom of love stand alone above all else in my life so that many are drawn to Your beauty, Lord. Under the word of Matthew 5:6 and the authority of Christ, these prayers I humbly submit to Your tender mercy.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst
for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Matthew 5:6, ESV
