Lord, I know that I can do nothing apart from You and that I am easily distracted by details and derailments in my attempt to plan out every aspect of my life. I humbly ask You to touch the depths of my heart with Your power and grace so that I may give to others what You have given to me. Lord Jesus, I look to You to guard my heart from the onslaught of the enemy’s condemnation. Let me not live in fear, but be willing to love completely and dearly those You have placed in my path, God. May all that You have given me be used for the glory of Your Kingdom. Make me the true ambassador for Christ that You desire me to be as You enable me to love, to live and to move according to Your will and for Your pleasure. I delight to be Your child, Lord God. Under the Word given in 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
For you know how, like a father with his children,
we exhorted each one of you and encouraged you
and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God,
who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.
1 Thessalonians 2:11-12, ESV
