Word of God, speak to the soul of Your servant. Anchor me to truth in the midst of the storm of deception that creates chaos in the culture surrounding me. Call me to the deep, my Lord, so that I am abiding in You and only You. Jesus, may the specificity with which You know the intricate wiring of my heart knit me to Your love. Empower me to submit to my Author’s hand as You write the story of my life to the glory of Your Name, Lord. Let me not fear the stumbling because You can use it to teach me. Let me not fear the failures because You can use it to strengthen me. Let me not fear the doubt because You can use it to increase my faith. I give it all to You, Lord. Take all of my less-thans so You can make more of Yourself in me. Lead me to stand on the ground gained by the grace of the cross. Under the power of the Word in 2 Peter 1:3 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I humbly pray.
His divine power has granted to us all things
that pertain to life and godliness,
through the knowledge of Him who called us
to His own glory and excellence.
2 Peter 1:3, ESV
