My Father in heaven, make Your Name known through the working details of the life given me. Bring Your servant to my fullest image-bearing potential, Lord God Almighty. Cause my heart to boil with fiery faith that cannot be doused by unforeseen circumstances. Make the self-constructed barriers in my soul tremble beneath the awesome wonder of Your truth until full access is granted to Your Spirit. Let my ears be tuned to the whisper of Your guidance each and every day. Let my eyes be open to the glory of heaven’s majesty in the midst of the world’s perpetual assault of darkness. Hear my cries for help, Lord, when the enemy taunts me toward the precipice of temptation. Listen to the pleas of my heart when I am overwhelmed with my own selfish desire caused by misunderstanding. May the iniquity that plagues me shrivel up like an autumn leaf because Your Spirit is the spring of my soul. Let Your love come to life inside of me until I blossom with the fragrance of Christ amidst a world covered by the stench of death. Under the mighty power of Your Word in 2 Corinthians 2:15-16 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ
among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
To the one we are an aroma that brings death;
to the other, an aroma that brings life.
And who is equal to such a task?
2 Corinthians 2:15-16, NIV
