Father of all grace, Lord of abundant mercy, may the favor of Your perfect love cloak me with peace. My soul is desperate for the transforming power of incorruptible love that only You provide. My heart thirsts for the quenching truth that only emanates from Your Word. Let me delight to be Yours. Let me rise above the storms so that I can see from Your perspective. I invite You, Jesus, to reach into the depths of my being in order to pull to the surface of my soul all the image-bearing potential that I possess as Your creation. Walk me through life in grace. Fill me in every moment with faith. Provide for me the courage to trust. Instill in me the wisdom to lead. Empower me with the Spirit of love. Delighted to be Your vessel, thrilled at Your continuous transformation in me, I bow to You in humble prayer. Under the Word of truth You set down in 2 Corinthians 4:7 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I lift my heart in worship and praise.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show
that this all-surpassing power
is from God and not from us.
2 Corinthians 4:7, NIV
