Let my soul magnify the Lord. Let my heart rejoice in Jesus Christ, my Savior. Thank You, Father, for the sweet assurance Your grace offers me. Open up my faith to the depths of Your heart. Open up my understanding to the wisdom of Your counsel. I am in desperate need of You, Lord God. I am in awe of who You are. May my soul seek for nothing less than all of Your righteousness because I long to please You. Open my ears to hear the tender song You are singing over me. Draw me into Your inviting love. When I have lost my way, Jesus, turn me back around so that I face Your light and stop chasing the shadows. May the fire of Your holiness fully consume me. Teach me, Lord. Mold me. Shape me into the image bearing creation I was designed to be. Under the Word of truth given in Luke 1:46-49 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior,
because He has looked with favor
on the humble condition of His slave.
Surely, from now on all generations
will call me blessed,
because the Mighty One
has done great things for me,
and His name is holy.
Luke 1:46-49, HCSB
