My Lord, let me praise You in the lofty heights of great spiritual gain. Let me plead with You in the darkest valleys of temptation. When I am soaring like the eagle, it is the wind of Your Spirit that keeps me afloat. When I am sinking in the miry pit it is Your hand that I reach for to pull me out. Without You Jesus, I am nothing but a brittle stick worthy to be tossed in the fires. Only the strong tether of Your breath can keep me abiding in the vine. Lord, continually wrap me up in the tendrils of Your heart. Only Your song can quiet my mournful resignations. Teach my lips to utter hallelujahs no matter where I find myself on this journey that is all about You and Your glorious Kingdom. When You lift up my Spirit, Lord, my eyes glisten with hope. When Your holy Word penetrates my heart barriers, love is stirred within my soul. Keep me near Your majesty on the sunny days. Keep me beneath Your authority when the storm clouds roll in. Keep me in You always and forevermore, my Lord and Savior. Amen. Under the mighty Word of God set forth in 1 John 1:7 and the authority of Christ Jesus I bow in prayer.
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.
1 John 1:7, WEB
