Incline the ears of my soul to Your teaching, Lord God. Make me deaf to all other noise that serves only to distract me from Your calling. Unbind the shackles that have hindered me with deceit for too long, as You take me into the glorious freedom of truth and grace. Utter whispers of divine love in the dark seasons of my life. Let me hear Your heart, O God, so that Your Word is etched into my being. Reveal to me the wonders of salvation so that I will never take for granted Your work upon the cross. Wreck me, Lord, until I am broken in pieces that can only be put back together by Your loving hands. Establish Your testimony through my life because this story belongs to You, Jesus. Upon the altar of Your grace I will place the blank pages. Upon the altar of Your mercy I delight that You edit my past. Bring Your Name glory through Your servant for I am holy Yours. Under the Word You have given in John 17:9-11 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world
but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.
All Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them.
And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world,
and I am coming to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your Name,
which You have given Me, that they may be one, even as We are One.
John 17:9-11, ESV
