Jesus, I delight that You are my advocate. My heart overflows with gratitude for the constant intercession You make on my behalf. Your grace has washed me clean. Your love has cleansed my soul’s unworthiness. Equip me to walk in Your love. Enable me to keep Your commandments. Let me live a life reflective of You, showing people who You really are. Help me to know You more. Lead me to the deep places of Your heart, God. Reveal to me the hidden secrets that will bind me to You in love forever more. Teach me to abide in You so that I can walk in the same manner that You walked and live in the same manner that You lived. Let the darkness within me pass away until all that is left is Your light. Open my eyes where I am blind, Lord. Close my heart where I am vulnerable to the enemy. In all things, be glorified within Your servant, Lord. Let me not love the world or the desires of the flesh. Rather, let me serve those in the world with the power of holy love. Under the Word of 1 John 2:15-17 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
Do not love the world or the things in the world.
If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes
and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world.
And the world is passing away along with its desires,
but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
1 John 2:15-17, ESV
