Lord of all the universe, direct my beating heart toward Your love until no other pursuit in life satisfies me. May the hollow of my soul be filled with the fullness of Your Spirit. Jesus, Your pleasure is my desire. Your glory is my aim. Take me deeper into the heart of Your will until I resonate with the power of Your inheritance. Father, remove the debris from my heart that trips me up with emotional clutter that hinders my awareness of Your presence. Shield me from the arrows the enemy flings at me as You hold me up in the truth so that I am not wounded by the condemnation. Thank You for the work of salvation You completed on the cross. Thank You for the invitation to come to You. Lord, don’t stop making me the image-bearer I was designed to be. Under the Word of 1 Corinthians 13:12 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror;
then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part;
then I shall know fully,
even as I am fully known.
1 Corinthians 13:12, NIV
