Father, You can do things within my heart that I am powerless to do on my own. For You are the planter of delight. Your hands sprinkle joy within my soul, awakening me to heaven’s perspective on life circumstances. Teacher, define my actions by the spiritual power of love. Quiet my selfish protests which demand that my personal rights are not offended. Lord, make my eyes look away from evil. Let me not fixate on deceptive pleasures. Your majesty overwhelms me, Lord. Your radiance thrills me. I find no satisfaction outside of Your presence. Cause me to heed Your invitation to walk the narrow path which leads to life. Hinder me, Lord God, from my continuous sojourning toward death as You turn me around to walk toward life. The steadfast love of Your salvation beckons to the deep hunger within me through promises only You can fulfill. Jesus, I give You my borderless trust because You are worthy. Under the Word of Deuteronomy 30:19-20 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you
that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.
Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
and that you may love the Lord your God,
listen to His voice, and hold fast to Him. For the Lord is your life.
Deuteronomy 30:19-20, NIV
