Today’s Prayer

Your love, O Lord, has withstood all my petty rebellions. Though I continually turned my back on the light, contentedly chasing shadows, it was Your relentless pursuit which finally caught me. My speech cannot begin to capture the intensity of devotion in my heart. What could I say to the One who has said it all to me? What could I do for the One who did it all for me? I humbly seek Your face, Jesus. I bow before Your majesty. Even though summoned to face the host of dangers accompanying life, I will not fear because You are with me. With all the infinity of Your being, captivate and hold Your beloved saints. Within the omnipotence of Your love, I finally find the rest my soul has craved. My words drip with inexpressible gratitude in prayer, Lord God. Thank You for the claim You have placed upon my heart and the seal protectively covering my soul. I am fully Yours. Under the might of the Word given in Song of Solomon 8:6 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in prayer before the altar of the King.

Place me like a seal over your heart,
    like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
    its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
    like a mighty flame.
Song of Solomon 8:6, NIV
