Father, lead me through the narrow gate. Help me find my way off the path that is easy and leads to destruction. Grant me the strength to persevere along the hard way. Grant me the wisdom to recognize the footsteps of Your Holy Spirit so that I can diligently follow. Rest me, Lord, in Your presence when I am weary. Lift me by Your mighty grace when I have fallen. Take me to new depths of truth in Your Word so that I can remain fixed on the solid foundation of faith in Christ Jesus. Take my love, Jesus, in its entirety and without conditions because You are worthy. All good things come from You. Let me use what You have given for Your ultimate glory now and forevermore. Increase my faith. Enhance my love. Lead me in a life of worship. Under the mighty power of Your Word in Matthew 7:13-14 and the authority of Christ, I humbly pray.
Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide
and the way is easy that leads to destruction,
and those who enter by it are many.
For the gate is narrow and the way is hard
that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
Mattthew 7:13-14, ESV
