Lord, I delight in Your personal touch in my life. I rejoice that I am not beyond Your omniscient gaze. What a deplorable condition my soul was in during my wandering rebellion. Gracious God, thank You for Your pursuing love. Thank You for Your enduring compassion on those You created. Prevent the ungodly tendrils from choking out the truth Your Word imparts. Unravel my soul until I am fixing my thoughts entirely on You. Even when the terrain of sorrow trips me up Lord, remind me to grab hold of Your outstretched hand. When the pang of perseverance reaches the limits of my endurance God, infuse me with the empowerment of Your Holy Spirit. Make me a faithful follower through the struggles. Turn my testimony into Your glory, Lord God. Beneath the canopy of Your mercy, I find refuge. Lord, I delight in the intimacy of relationship with You, the Giver of my life. Under the Word of truth in Isaiah 41:9-10 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I humbly bow in prayer.
You are My servant,
I have chosen you and not cast you off;
fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:9-10, ESV
