Today’s Prayer

My heavenly Savior, how deeply my soul thirsts for You, reliever of my parched condition of sorrow. You are the source of my strength, enabling me to climb this mountain of an obstacle before me. Let me drink thoroughly of the salvation You offer me, Jesus. The purity of heaven is Yours to bestow. The freshness of truth is the very breath of Spirit I need to blow away the unnecessary sadness of soul which entangles me in worldly concern. Lord, open my darkened eyes to see the brightness of Your presence. Make my tears holy enough to remove the dust of self-pity which often plagues my sight of You. My Lord and Savior, I long for the anointing oil of Your love to cleanse me from the defiling emotions of sorrows unfounded. I have been given everything I need in You. Rouse my troubled heart, Jesus. Lift me from this lowly condition that robs me of the joy and peace so freely given. Cast away all lethargy of spirit, all coldness of heart and any contemplations that taint a chaste devotion to You. Lord, You are my source, my center and circumference of all that delights my soul. Let me forever be enchanted by Your beautiful salvation which is my eternal source of joy. Under the magnificence of the Word given in Isaiah 35:10 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in humble prayer.

And the redeemed of the Lord will return And come to Zion with joyful shouting, And everlasting joy will be on their heads. They will obtain gladness and joy, And sorrow and sighing will flee away.
Isaiah 35:10, NASB
