Lord my God, Maker of heaven and earth, break me away from the earthly entanglements that taint my soul with the ugly that is not befitting a child of the most High God. Swiftly come to me in the power of Your Holy Spirit, so that I am infused with the fragrance of Christ that combats the stench of selfishness that so often rises within me. Enable me to abandon the doubtful preoccupations that hinder my walk with You, Father, as You reveal to me the better way. Let me put my feeble hand in Yours as I commit my future to Your will and not my own. I am desperate for time away with You, Jesus, so that I can heal from the harshness of this world. Usher me into the secret place where there is safety in vulnerability of prayer because this is the only space for true healing. Under the Word of truth You have given me in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, ESV
