Holy God who is so utterly worthy of the praise of every breath, favor Your loved one with blessings from above that will establish my faith and grant my heart sweet rest in You. Tether my weary soul to the truth of Your Word so that all actions and speech bring much glory to Your Name. Hold me steady in the storms; for You are my refuge. Lead me into the meadow of provision where Your presence is my constant awareness so that I am secure in the knowledge that my every need is within Your sight. Make me to know You in a fresh way as You turn the diamond of Your Spirit just enough so that my perspective of You is newly altered by the glimmer of divine love. I am Your chosen dwelling, Lord, and for that may my soul rejoice. Under the words of truth in Ephesians 2:19-22 and the authority of Christ Jesus, these prayers are offered.
So then you are no longer strangers and aliens,
but you are fellow citizens with the saints
and members of the household of God,
built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,
in whom the whole structure, being joined together,
grows into a holy temple in the Lord.
In him you also are being built together
into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
Ephesians 2:19-22, ESV
