My Lord, I grant You access in faith to all that I am. Let my entire spirit, my whole soul and all of my being bow before Your holiness. Touch my iniquity with Your majesty for I am in desperate need of Your presence. Unravel the lies that have tainted me. Only You can preserve me as blameless in Your sight. I delight in Your faithfulness, Jesus. When I was yet a sinner, You died to save me. Help me to cast aside anything that hinders my walk with You. Reveal to me the path that You have chosen despite the many wrong turns which I have taken. Let me dance beneath the sparkling drops of Your unmerited mercy as the shackles are broken and my soul’s feet are free. God, enable me to love others as You have loved me. Permit me to walk under the umbrella of Your forgiveness. Draw me out according to Your sanctifying process, Lord. I grant You access in hope to all of my heart. Under the Word of Ephesians 2:8 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith
—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
Ephesians 2:8, NIV
