Holy God of heaven, hold my heart in Your tender hands. Minister to the aches inside my soul so that I am not tainted by the pains that life inflicts on me. Shine Your holy light through the cracks in this vessel, Jesus, so that the dark is illuminated and the shadows chased away. You are more than enough. You are everything. You are more than my life-giver. You are the breath of my soul. Fill my heart with gratitude for the grace that sustains me, the mercy that comforts me and the strength that motivates me. Make me Your reflection of beauty, Lord God. In Your goodness, I will rest. In Your majesty, I will pray with awe and wonder. Under the tenderness of Your Holy Word in 1 Chronicles 16:27 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I humbly pray.
Splendor and majesty are before Him;
strength and joy are in His place.
1 Chronicles 16:27, ESV
