Light Of The World

Light of the world,

we bless you.

Thank you for stepping into our darkness,

and saving us,

bringing comfort in our chaos,

opening our eyes and hearts to see

your beautiful mercy,

your welcoming heart,

you who are the only One who saves.

We rest in the sweetness of your Spirit,

your presence like honey,

anointing us with love,

precious fellowship,

warm camaraderie with you,

your good cheer,

happy heart

fills us with gladness,

and we remember you,

we worship you,

and bless you today.

Amen.

Temple Of Grace

Lord,

help me to care for my holy temple,

where lies the Holy of holies,

my conscious clear,

my heart right,

my thoughts at rest,

my body well,

so that I may tabernacle with you,

your Spirit comfortable and welcome,

dwelling in me,

having full rein.

Take over,

where I do what I don’t want to do,

conflicted in flesh and spirit,

reign victorious over me,

establishing your mercy, comfort, and grace.

Gain the territories I struggle to yield,

and grant me vision once more

of your beauty, holiness, peace, and rest.

Have your way in me Lord,

that I may be perfected in your image,

reflecting your love, your heart, your righteousness.

I cast myself into your waves of mercy

and I praise you for your saving grace.

Amen.

You Are Beautiful

Lord,

Would you give me your eyes

to see the heart rather than the outward appearance,

turning the mirror first upon myself,

before I should judge.

Please show me your beauty,

bring revelation of your essence,

give shape, impressions, expressions, and feels

so my heart can touch and taste the beauty of your Spirit.

Wean me off of shiny, sparkly baubles,

distractions that confuse my senses

and dull my spirit

anchoring me to a temporal world

that’s dying and returning to dust.

Let me seek to radiate your beauty Lord

from the inside out,

rather than chase worldly standards

that mock and destroy your image in me.

Help me to delight in you alone,

inviting your presence

deep within me,

desiring to dwell with you in the Holy of holies,

above all else,

and cultivating a gentle, quiet spirit

beautiful to you,

that you would delight, treasure, and take pleasure in,

because you alone are my eternal, forever Bridegroom God.

I love you Lord.

Amen.

His Own

Abba,

you are holy and perfect,

your Word is ever true,

and I cherish your words

over my heart, my mind, my life.

Thank you for your songs of joy,

your delight, singing and rejoicing;

your love for me,

your hope and strength.

The lies and flaming arrows of the enemy

disintegrate in your presence,

you call me beautiful.

Grant me faith

to wrap my heart around your words that bring life,

telling me I have no lack in you,

but all that I need to grow and give.

Let me arise fully as your child,

blooming where you call,

and help me not to hide anymore,

but to shine your light.

I bless you Abba,

thank you for calling me your own.

Amen.
