Lord God Almighty, feed my hungry soul with the nearness of Your presence. Let my awareness be alerted to the power of Your sovereign love. Instill in me a submissive spirit that bows before Your majesty. Remove all lesser desires so that I am consumed with unrelenting energy to pursue holiness. Jesus, there is none like You. I commit myself to Your care. Save me from my wretched choices. Take me to the cross daily. Help me to recognize the worth of Your grace in my life. When the thoughts of my mind trouble me, draw me into the shelter of Your truth. When the enemy distracts me, refocus my heart on eternity’s horizon. When the actions that I take are not leading me in the direction You wish me to go, gain my attention in whatever way You must, Lord. Keep my eyes attune to Your voice amidst the cacophony of interference from the world around me. Make my feet step in the footprints You have left me, Jesus. Under the beauty of Your Word as written in Luke 9:23 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
“Whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves
and take up their cross daily and follow Me.”
Luke 9:23, NIV
