Holy and Mighty are You, O God. Let my heart remain steadfast in faithful adoration. Awaken the dawn of an eternal perspective within my soul. As I sojourn through the valleys of life, let me leave footprints in the sand that point directly to You. Speak sweet holiness into my being through Your Word, Lord. Usher me into a place of healing that sanctifies my body and nourishes my soul. Only You can turn a person from darkness to light. Only You can see what festers in a single heart. Let the rhythmic cadence of my praise bring delight to Your throne. Let the melodic song of worship cleanse my soul into Your likeness. Jesus, I need You to teach me. I need You to guide me. Take me away from the stranglehold of the enemy and into the freedom of carrying my cross. Under the Word given in Luke 9:23 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in prayer.
Anyone who wants to follow Me
must put aside his own desires and conveniences
and carry his cross with him every day and keep close to Me!
Luke 9:23, TLB
