Father in heaven, grant me the ability to yield to Your will for my life. Help me to surrender my need to control that which is uncontrollable. Shatter my illusions so that my perspective is filtered by the truth of Your sovereignty. Let me trust the free fall of faith because my assurance rests in the strength of Your arms catching me up in love. Your love, Jesus, is matchless and abounding. Your love is nourishing and sustaining. Your love is fulfilling and satisfying. Lord, You are enough. You are all that I need. You have supplied me with everything for this life, this calling, this journey. Sweep me up in the hope of heaven that can permeate the clouds of sorrow that often move into my days. Under the joyous truth of Romans 6:23 and the authority of Christ, these prayers are my offering today.
For the wages of sin is death,
but the free gift of God
[that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers]
is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23, AMP
