My Lord and King, grant me the meekness and quietness of an interior life completely held in Your hands. Grant me the power to submissively accept Your will each moment, each hour, each day given me. Let my soul remain pliable beneath the tender tutelage of Your Holy Spirit. Help me to embrace suffering that will unite me to You in the utmost depths of faith. For I know that in Christ, I can experience sweetness beneath the most heinous provocation. In Your peace, I can have calmness in the midst of turmoil. Enable me to yield to the wishes of others, thinking of myself less with a compassionate sensibility to the slights of minor offense. With You near me, anxiety and worry is vanquished because in Your presence, I am delivered from all care and fear. May the inward life given me in Christ make my days a living testimony of the glory of the King who has sacrificed for me to show me love that changes everything. Under the beauty of Your Word given in John 10:28-30 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;
no one will snatch them out of My hand.
My Father, who has given them to Me,
is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand.
I and the Father are one.
John 10:28-30, NIV
