Lord, hear the midnight endearments of my heart as I seek You in the night seasons of life. Pour Your living water into my parched soul because my spirit is languishing within me. Father, do not let me pursue lesser loves when You offer me everything I need for life. Usher me into the light by the power of Your Holy Spirit dwelling within me. Your great Name stirs up the ecstasy of worship in my soul. Your glory ignites my faith in fiery devotion. When my soul is bereft of peace, I come to You in order to find it again. The core of my being cries out for You, Lord, because I am incomplete and empty without the One who unties the knots entangling me. Do not let me be lured by the deceptive schemes of the enemy. Shield me in truth because You are the lover of my soul. Under the mighty Word of John 8:12 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
Jesus once again addressed them:
“I am the world’s Light. No one who follows me
stumbles around in the darkness.
I provide plenty of light to live in.”
John 8:12, MSG
