What a wondrous love is this that I belong to Jesus! What an honor and a shield that You have made me Your own, Lord. Help me to live a transparent life that magnifies all that You are in me. Bound my conduct and conversation by holy power so that all I do and say are redolent of heaven. May Your divine love shape my features. May Your supreme grace permeate my countenance. I am Yours, Jesus. When sin encroaches, let me stand fast against the wickedness that would mar Your image in me. When tempted by worldly treasure that will rob me of heavenly delight, let me turn away, content with nothing as long as I belong to Jesus. When danger preys on me and distress nips at my soul, let me take refuge in my Lord when darkness has come upon me. For You have made me a child of light, Jesus. Though others may be idle and distracted Lord, keep me energized with power from Your Spirit. Keep me focused on the things of heaven even while sharing Your goodness in the world. May Your servant never give up because You never gave up on me. I am Yours, Jesus. Let no pleasure on earth outweigh the delight I have found in You. Let no cause distract me from the mission of truth. I am Yours, Jesus. I am delightedly, wholeheartedly Yours. Under the Word of God found in John 10:27-29 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand.
John 10:27-29, NIV
Keep me focused on the things of heaven even while sharing Your goodness in the world. May Your servant never give up because You never gave up on me. I am Yours, Jesus. Let no pleasure on earth outweigh the delight I have found in You–Amen!
