Today’s Prayer

Jesus, Your love is changeless. Your affections are incorruptible. Who am I that You would lavish such priceless grace upon me? Who am I that You would pursue my heart so relentlessly? Quicken my soul, Holy Spirit, at the sound of His great Name because I delight to belong to Jesus. Your thoughts are my refuge, Lord. Your salvation is my precious destination. From everlasting You have sought to save my lost soul. Your hand carries me as delicately as a tender jewel that will be placed upon Your crown. Let my heart not slip from Your fingers. Let my soul not reject Your love. Though my own love is weak, Yours is stronger than the grave. Though I have given You every reason to grow weary of me, Your love remains unfailing. What joy awakens within me to know that I am such a loved child of God! May I live my life in responsive devotion. Under the Word given in Song of Solomon 8:6 and the authority of Christ, I pray.

Place me like a seal over Your heart,
    like a seal on Your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
    its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
    like a mighty flame.
Song of Solomon 8:6, NIV

  1. Let my heart not slip from Your fingers. Let my soul not reject Your love. Though my own love is weak, Yours is stronger than the grave. Though I have given You every reason to grow weary of me, Your love remains unfailing…

    I think it is important to remember His love is unfailing even though our love for Him is weak.
