Lord, reveal to me the essence of who You designed me to be. Show me the best way to reflect You in the world in which I live. As I move through the day, empower me with words from on high. Let my thoughts be tethered to the goodness of heaven. Let my actions be aligned with the truth as set forth in Your Word. Make me the ambassador for Christ that I am supposed to be. Father, make me Your vessel. Pour into me Your living water so that I can pour it out upon others. Make me Your offering. Let Your blessings flow through me in my words and deeds. Empower me to love as You have loved me. Equip me to give as You have given me. Lead me to overlook offense as You have overlooked my offense. I take sweet refuge behind the shield of Christ’s righteousness. I take sweet rest in the freedom of salvation offered upon the cross. God, rewire my heart to pursue holiness instead of religion. Move my relationship with You to the top of the priorities that clamor for my heart’s attention. You are my God and there is none like You. Under the beautiful Word of Isaiah 44:8 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
Do not tremble, do not be afraid.
Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago?
You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me?
No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.
Isaiah 44:8, NIV
