My Savior and King, I turn to You for the refinement that my soul needs. Help me through the vanquishing power of Your Holy Spirit not to let disappointments turn into injury. Break me in pieces with the power of Your truth as it radiates off the pages of Scripture. Slay the desires in me that are not worthy of one called by Your Name – the desire to be known, the desire to exert power, the desire to satisfy selfish inclinations. Drive me from the fruitless joys of an indulgent existence so that I can move into the space of promise in You. Let Your Name, Jesus, stir an ecstatic response of worship in the depths of my heart. Betroth me to You in faithful adoration so that the rapturous teaching You pour into me truly transforms my being. Lord, only Your sovereignty can stabilize my soul. So, I will search out the patches of God-light in the forest of my life experience. Under the Word of Jeremiah 29:13 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
You will seek me and find me,
when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13, ESV
