When the circumstances of life create a quaking in my soul, Jesus, You are the One who steadies my heart. When the waves of adversity crash over me, my Lord, You are there to lend me a hand so that I can stand back up. Your love and compassion washes over me in cleansing grace for which I am ever grateful. Your truth and sovereignty anchor me through ever storm. When I do not understand, let my trust be secure in You. When my flesh entices me to despair, let my hope be re-birthed in Your presence. Jesus, show me how to love like You. Lead me to the sacred holiness that Your sacrifice invites. May I live beneath the banner that You have placed over me. May I glorify Your Name in word and deed for every breath given me is Yours. Under the mighty Word of truth in Acts 17:28 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
“‘In Him we live and move and have our being’;
as even some of your own poets have said,
‘For we are indeed his offspring.’”
Acts 17:28, ESV
