Today’s Prayer

I am ever grateful for the tender touch of Your fingertips of grace stroking the cheek of my soul until I was roused from the stupefying slumber of selfishness. Your love is good, Lord. Let me be mindful of the truth so delicately presented with a force that unstopped my deaf ears and opened my blind eyes. Your goodness is my refuge, Lord. How effectual is Your willingness to pardon. How expansive is Your mercy, God. Your beauty is beyond my finite comprehension. Your greatness encompasses the dimension of eternity that Your heart resides in. Father, equip Your servant to live worthy of such a realm. Your salvation defines and your grace invites. Use conviction to prune the excess which entangles my heart. Strip me of anything not lining up with Your will. Even as it breaks me, I can rest, knowing You are my healer. Truly my heart overflows with thanksgiving in worship. You are the Living God, the Living Savior, the only Good Shepherd and the Everlasting Sovereign King. In Your unbreakable love I rest in safety. Under the mighty Word of truth in Psalm 23:5-6 and the authority of Christ I bow in prayer.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil.
    My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and loving kindness shall follow me all the days of my life,
    and I will dwell in Yahweh’s house forever.
Psalm 23:5-6, WEB
