My King, take the slumbering child within me and awaken the fiery faith which delights You. Transform my heart to one of nobility worthy of Your Name. Let me embrace the identity of truth – that I am a child of God. Draw out the boldness of a lion that roars out Your Word. Lead the gentleness of the lamb that invites peace within the soul. Let both dwell within Your servant as a perfect reflection of Christ, my Savior. May I not shrink away from Your gaze because only You see the truth of who I am. In every challenge, refine my soul, Lord. Through every trial, shape my heart. Perpetually teach me, Lord. Your servant is a Kingdom student with much to learn. Until I graduate into glory, bring me through the lessons which will make me who You designed me to be for Your Name and renown. Under the Word given in 2 Timothy 1:7-9 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
For God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control.
Therefore don’t be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord,
but endure hardship for the Good News according to the power of God,
who saved us and called us with a holy calling,
not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace,
which was given to us in Christ Jesus before times eternal.
2 Timothy 1:7-9, WEB
“take the slumbering child within me and awaken the fiery faith which delights You”
I like this imagery–may we wake up and be on fire for the Lord!
