Word of God, speak and teach Your servant how to listen. Rain down drops of heavenly instruction so that I do not lose my way. Open my deaf ears to Your voice. Open my weary heart to Your healing. Open my empty spirit to Your filling. Take me deeper, wider and higher than my human perspective can take me. I long to worship You in truth, Lord. Let me no longer live under the veil of deception which the enemy has thrown over me. For I am a child under the banner of Your love. I am called, chosen and redeemed by the King who made me His own. Jesus, my being resonates with gratitude for the grace You have showered upon me from the cross. May I never take for granted all that You have given me. Lead me to a life of holiness that brings You glory. Under the Word given in 1 Peter 2:9 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises
of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.
1 Peter 2:9, NIV
