Father, make my life one long stroll with You. Enable me by instilling a defiant faith that will not leave Your side. For You are the only one who can guide me along the narrow way. When my heart is languishing within me, keep me close to You so that I do not seek healing from temporary pleasures. When my spirit is anguished within me, comfort me with Your holiness. Slay the desire to be known as You remove the weeds of pride growing in the garden of my soul. Prune me, Lord, so that I can bear the fruit You desire. Repair the rupture within me so that I can once again be nourished by Your living water. Drive me away from the pursuit of fruitless joys so that I can be brought into the broad place of truth where there is no constraint hindering me. When my purpose in life is evaporating before my eyes, fix my eyes back on You. When meaning leads to disillusionment, take me into the clarity only Your presence can provide. I delight to be Your child, Lord. May I walk with You from earth into eternity, steady and faithful. Under the Word of truth in Ephesians 5:1-2 and the authority of Christ, I humbly pray.
Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example],
as well-beloved children [imitate their father];
and walk continually in love
[that is, value one another—practice empathy and compassion,
unselfishly seeking the best for others],
just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us,
an offering and sacrifice to God
[slain for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance.
Ephesians 5:1-2, AMP
