My sweet Savior, lead me in joyful steps along life’s sorrowful road. When the tragic consequences of ungodliness affect my life, lift me higher so that my responses do not fan the flame of difficulty. Put a new song in my heart which overrides the chaotic noise of worry. Let Your sweet melody of assurance calm my inner being and bring to light all that has been brewing in darkness. With the matchless splendor of unparalleled satisfaction, bring me to draw water from the well of salvation. Let Your life, Jesus, be a spring of water welling up from deep inside my soul. Though I be anointed with the oil of tribulation, my heart rejoices to share in Your suffering. Though my heart is torn from betrayal and crushed beneath the weight of being forsaken, You never leave me, Lord. Let me look to You in this dark season, for the light You bring sustains me. Let me hear from You in the noisy distractions because Your voice is all I want to hear. Though I have lost everything, I have everything I need in Christ. Praise be to the Lord for His surpassing grace which is a treasure that cannot be stolen. Under the Word of truth in Psalm 46:10 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
“Cease striving and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Psalm 46:10, NASB
