Father, let me not be separated from Your love. Shield me from pursuing lesser desires. Sift my heart’s contents so that I can be empty of all selfish inclination. Pierce the darkness within me by the light of Your truth. Vanquish the loneliness that assails me by the power of Your perfect love. Make me the conqueror You designed me to be, Lord. May death not separate me from life in You. Let demons not tempt me to turn away from Your path. During the trials of the present or the fear of the future, let me not forget that You are my safe refuge. You are my focal point. Your love is my destiny. My heart longs to be wrapped up in it for eternity. Until that day, when I walk into Your Kingdom, leaving my earthly life behind me, let me serve You in truth, never separated from Your love. Thank You, Jesus, for overcoming the gap between us. Under the power of the Word in Romans 8:37-39 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors
through Him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future,
nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:37-39, NIV
