My Father in heaven, let my heart not grow cold in the radiant light of Your presence. Turn me toward You when I have my back against the light, content with the mere shadow of Your glory. Jesus, You have made the Father known to us. You have revealed the depth of heart which invites my soul to embrace the Kingdom of Heaven. Holy Spirit, blow on the embers of my faith until the fiery blaze illuminates my words and actions. Lead my every step in sacred daily-ness while making me more reflective of Your beauty. Lord, I am thankful for all You have entrusted to me. My heart’s contents are stirred up by every revelation of Your divine love. You have said that to whom much is given, much will be required, Lord. Require from me every ounce of devotion that will further Your Kingdom. Make me ever mindful of my Kingdom assignments until my priorities are aligned with Your pleasure. Consecrate me, Lord God, because I am Yours. Let Your perfect love be unrivaled in my life. Warm Your beloved by the fires of intimate prayer. Let me give out of the abundant overflow of Your particular favor until the warmth of Your majestic offer of salvation flows through my days. Under the Word given in 1 Corinthians 9:16-17 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in prayer.
For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward, but if not of my own will, I am still entrusted with a stewardship.
1 Corinthians 9:16-17, ESV
