Today’s Prayer

Lord of the beloved, You are my blessed portion. You are the satisfaction of all my wants. You are the treasure that never diminishes. Let my soul not seek the wealth of this world when I have found infinite value in my relationship with You. Let me never forget that You are enough for me, Lord Jesus. For with the Bread of Heaven, my hunger for love is satiated. With the Living Water, my thirst for meaning is quenched. Your abundant life flows in an endless stream toward my heart if only I open myself up in prayer of sweet communion to be filled by You. The pangs of this life are momentary afflictions that pale in comparison to heaven’s glory. Minister to my responding heart in seasons of trial, Lord, by granting me an eternal perspective. There is no dark hour that is in vain when sifted through the sovereign hands of my Lord. In You, Jesus, I have the abundant life of faith where desires are aligned with the will of my Father in heaven; and my needs are met in the merciful provision of the King of Kings. You comfort me in the dark valleys. You assuage my griefs. You guide my steps now and forever more. Under the blossoming influence of Your Word in Matthew 5:6 and the authority of Christ, I bow in humble prayer.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be filled.
Matthew 5:6, WEB
