Move closer, Lord God Almighty, so that there is no space between us. You are the dazzling starlight that twinkles in the darkness of the shadow-land where I have wandered. You are the glimmer of light that beckons me to turn away from the places that I stray. I am grateful for Your forgiving love that grants me the assurance of acceptance no matter where I have been. I am looking to You to draw me back from the power of evil’s temptations that ensnare me when I get to close to the boundary of self-indulgence. Make me immune from the world’s advertisements, Lord. Shield me from this culture of want. Rid me of the need to fill the empty holes with temporary pleasures when You offer me the eternal fulfillment of heaven’s glory. You are enough, Jesus. You are everything which I need. Under the Word of truth in Hebrews 4:16 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace
[that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence
and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures]
and find [His amazing] grace to help
in time of need [an appropriate blessing,
coming just at the right moment].
Hebrews 4:16, AMP
