Everlasting Father, my Prince of Peace, comfort the soul of Your beloved child for my heart is in turmoil within me. Help me to understand the teaching that lies beneath the pain of trials. Help me grasp the wisdom of rejoicing in the suffering so that I am made more like You. Permeate my selfish being with strength to sacrifice for others as You have for me. Allow me to be the fragrance of Christ in my words and deeds, Lord. You are worthy of all praise. You are the sustainer of my soul, the protector of my person, the One who weaves my heart-strings together into a beautiful tapestry of grace. Make my life move in the rhythm of Your will, Father, for this dance with You delights my soul. Under the melodic Word of Psalm 149:3 and the authority of the blood of Christ, I humbly pray.
Let them praise his name with dancing,
making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!
Psalm 149:3, ESV
