My Father in heaven, I inquire of You which way I should go as new days stretch out before me. I seek Your guidance because I desire every moment to be filtered through Your fingers of divine grace. Let my soul tarry in the depths of prayerful inquiry because I dare not take a step without Your light to lead me. The shadows of life are many, casting an eerie glow within the culture that surrounds me. Keep my heart in intentional pursuit of the fullness of love as it reaches across time from the cross to the days that loom before me. Grant me the power of Your victory, Jesus, so that I may live to Your glory now and forever more. Under the beauty given in Your Holy Word found in Philippians 2:15 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I lay my prayers upon the altar of my God.
Be blameless and innocent, children of God
without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation,
among whom you shine as lights in the world.
Philippians 2:15, ESV
