Keep me from stumbling, Lord God, as You complete the transforming work You have begun in me. When my gaze is distracted, I lose my footing. Anchor my soul to the truth, Jesus, so that the lies of this world do not trip me up. Hold onto me with Your love. Grasp me with Your grace. Free me from the snare of selfish desire. Only You can present me faultless by removing the blemishes that corrupt my soul. Clothe me in Your righteousness, Jesus, so that I am not naked and exposed to the darkness. Your light is my covering. Your love is my protection. Let the eternal spring of joy well up within me from the depths of my trust in You. Radiate through me everything that You are, Jesus, so that Your glory is magnified, bringing light to a darkened world. I am Yours. I am hoping in You. I am delighting in my Savior. Under the Word of 2 Peter 3:17-18 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned,
be on your guard so that you may not be carried away
by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.
2 Peter 3:17-18, NIV
