Today’s Prayer

My soul is consumed with longing for You, Jesus. My God in whom I trust, in whom I can find the answers to all my questions. The hunger in my heart can only be satisfied by Your presence, my King. For You are good. You are holy. You are just. Everything I’ve ever wanted I have found in Jesus. Everything I have ever needed was there in God’s outstretched hand all along. But I was too blind to see it, too busy to look for it. O God, open the eyes of Your beloved children that they might behold Your wondrous love. For Your love is an all-consuming fire that burns without burning. It warms the coldest of hearts. It fuels the weary soul. It cleanses the filthy and feeds the hungry. Your fire dances with the darkness, turning one to the light. It refines the rock of our souls into treasure You delight in. It is a beacon to the lost. It is soothing to the tired mind. Your fire, O LORD, grows in the heart of faith. It lights my way. It fuels the truth. It sustains the life. Ignite the prayers of Your loved ones, LORD. May Your fire flame the embers of love that have been cooled by the world. May Your fire burn within me until You and I are one. Let Your passion consume all of me so that Your will, my LORD, is done. Under the mighty Word of Psalm 50:2-4 and the authority of Christ Jesus I bow in humble prayer.

From Zion, perfect in beauty,
    God shines forth.
Our God comes
    and will not be silent;
a fire devours before Him,
    and around Him a tempest rages.
He summons the heavens above,
    and the earth, that He may judge His people.
Psalm 50:2-4, NIV
