Today’s Prayer

Seek Your beloved, Lord. Come find me in the midst of my holy discontent. Forgive my inconsistent walk, Lord God; and equip me to obey the Word You have given. How blessed is the one whom You deliver. How joyous are those who are called by Your Name. Bring me to the point of sweet surrender. Shape me with Your truth so that my gladness in You is multiplied. Let the weight of Your boundaries keep me pressed within the safety of Your cupping hands. Make my choices reflective of the way in which my heart adores You because I have a deep longing for You, Jesus. The inexhaustible wealth of Your presence is my supreme treasure. Through the wisdom given in Your Word, deliver me from my lack of understanding . Only You can hear the prayers of my heart, God. Only You can possibly know the complex intricacy of my plea for help. You know what I need before I even speak it aloud. Truly, there is none like You, Lord, who authors the story of my life according to Your purpose. Under the Word given in Psalm 113:5-7 and the authority of Christ, I bow in humble prayer.

Who is like the Lord our God,
    who is seated on high,
who looks far down
    on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust
    and lifts the needy from the ash heap.
Psalm 113:5-7, ESV
