Let the words of my weary heart waft like incense to heaven’s throne because You, alone, can hear me, Lord God Almighty. May the groaning of my soul be comforted in the arms of Your grace. Let me find rest in the sweet attention of Your presence, Lord. Fix the eyes of my heart upon You when I rise in the morning. Center the reflections of my soul upon Your holiness when I lie down in the evening. May I give you reason to delight in me, Lord. May I stand before Your majesty unshackled by the lies that once bound me. Through the abundance of Your steadfast love, let me reflect the beauty of Your holiness in truth manifested by faith now and forevermore. Make the way straight before me, Lord. Under the Word of Psalm 5:7-8 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
will enter your house.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
in the fear of you.
Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies;
make your way straight before me.
Psalm 5:7-8, ESV
