Lord, take me to the pinnacle of the mountain where Your presence resides when I pray. Let me never cease to long for the blessed communion You offer within the space of every breath. For I desperately need the replenishment of soul only You can give. Invite my soul daily to bask in the calming waters of Your Holy Word where truth offers a respite from the chaos of deceit swirling around me. Father, grant me strength to make the holy trek upward to the place where Your heart beckons me. Only Your Spirit can lift me up, Lord. Only Your call can lead me higher to stand upon the rock of faith revealed to me in Christ. Captivate my desires until my entire soul is realigned with Your sovereign will for life’s sojourning in the realm of the temporal. With Your guiding grace I will be readied for life in the realm of the eternal. I bow before you, my King and my Lord, placing these prayers upon the altar on high. Envelope all of my requests into Your majesty, Lord Jesus. Surround me with love that never breaks but sacrificially multiplies to glorify Your Name. Under the Holy Word of the Lord given in 1 Thessalonians 3:9-11 and the authority of Christ I bow in humble prayer.
For what thanksgiving can we render again to God for you, for all the joy with which we rejoice for your sakes before our God, night and day praying exceedingly that we may see your face, and may perfect that which is lacking in your faith? Now may our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way to you.
1 Thessalonians 3:9-11, WEB
