Close

Lord,

thank you that you’re with me,

right by my side,

holding my hand,

walking, leading, guiding me,

you are my Good Shepherd.

Even as the storms rage around me,

I’ll keep myself here

in your presence and love,

keeping my eyes fixed on you,

I shall not fear,

and I will trust you,

letting your rod pull me closer,

your staff defeat my enemies,

you are with me

through the fire, deep waters,

the mountains and valleys,

you will not allow my feet to stumble.

Glorify your name through me Lord

no matter what I am going through,

help me to thank you,

praise you,

love you,

bless you.

You are my God,

and I know you are faitful.

I worship you.

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.

God’s Love Is Everything

Abba,

Thank you for proving your love again and again,

your mercy and lovingkindness

are new every morning,

an endless well brimming over,

you love me despite my unbelief.

You are faithful when I am faithless.

I’m loved in my brokenness and weakness,

I’m loved, burnt out and exhausted,

I’m loved in my failures, mistakes, and wrong turns,

I’m loved in my mediocrity, inadequacy, and inability,

I’m loved in my pride, independence, and rebellion,

I’m loved in my self righteousness and sin.

You loved me through the wilderness,

teaching me what love is,

you love me because you are love,

and you’ve chosen me in your love.

I praise you that your love is not based

on my performance, excellence, or merit.

You give and you take away as you please,

I remind myself, I came naked and will return to dust,

everything I have comes from you,

is for you, goes back to you,

you sustain all that I am.

Apart from you I’m nothing Lord,

naked, bereft, cold, hard, proud,

miserable, deceived, heading straight for hell.

But you made the way through your Son,

you drew me,

you saved me,

you cleanse, heal me,

and make me whole.

You give me new life and life abundant,

you have given me yourself,

you are my portion, my cup, my inhertance,

and I praise you Lord.

Amen.

Secure In God

Lord,

thank you,

you get me,

you know me better than I know myself,

through my images,

visages and projections,

covering up,

diverting away from my sin and grime,

you peel it off,

layer by layer,

a gentle scrub,

a piercing cut,

a healing balm

revealing blood-infused life,

new wineskin,

your spirit resurrecting

the dead within.

You’ve got me,

walking, fumbling

in my new identity,

unsure, uncertain,

but following your voice,

messing up,

getting stuck,

dangling in transition,

but…

your Spirit a powerhouse within,

overcoming, rerouting all my failures,

using all my compost for life abundant,

growing and guiding me,

to live free and strong

from the inside out,

your hand upon me,

you’ll never let me go.

I rest secure in you.

Thank you Lord.

Amen.

Walk With The Lord

Lord,

thank you for extending your hand

to walk with you,

your presence inviting,

comfortable and gracious,

your heart humble and gentle,

always welcoming and open.

My soul is at ease

in your unconditional acceptance,

your patient, listening ear,

reminding me your voice doesn’t condemn,

shame or demean,

finding rest in your Words,

comfort in your silence,

your counsel and wisdom

light, peaceful… unexpected.

Your love catches me off guard,

you give mercy and kindness

when I think I’ve run out,

and I’m amazed

that you’re endless,

eternal,

you are God,

meek and powerful,

a mystery to me.

Help me to walk with you,

always be fascinated by you,

be in wonder and awe of you,

love, obey, and delight you

that your heart would be happy,

and my heart full and content,

never needing to look any further

to know my joy is complete.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.

Sweet Companionship

Lord,

You have shown me the Father,

gentle, generous, gracious, and kind,

good, wise, and perfect,

disciplining me for my good,

keeping me within pleasant boundaries

that are good for my soul.

You are my Provider,

meeting all my needs,

you are my Comforter,

you will never leave me nor forsake me.

You have given me everything I need,

every spiritual blessing

to walk in holiness and perfection in your eyes.

Help me to joyfully fellowship with you

in your suffering,

as you walked a stranger in this world.

Let me let go of my familiarity with the world,

to be your friend,

that my attachments to this world would fade away

in the light of your beautiful face,

and help me to just be still and walk

with you in the garden,

knowing there’s no other place I’d rather be

than with you as your companion.

I still my heart,

focusing my inward gaze upon you,

and I praise you and bless your Name.

Amen.

Sojourners

Lord,

help me to embrace the tension of being in this world

yet living for eternity.

Increase my faith,

let them be pillars within me,

to stand in your spiritual truths,

in the midst of culture’s temptations and my flesh.

Help me to examine my heart again and again

to clearly see and understand what I am truly living for.

Sift up my own deception,

expose my blind spots

where I am living for temporal comfort and gain.

I repent to you where the lines have gotten muddied in me,

and I ask you to cleanse my heart,

renew a right spirit,

grant me your perspective and incentive,

restore joy, peace, and hope

and help me to be steadfast in you.

Let me be ok in the struggle,

with the wrestle,

understanding that this is your call,

to live in your Spirit,

at odds with a world running the other way.

Help me to be wise and save souls,

obeying your voice,

following your instructions,

conducting myself honorably,

submitting my heart to your Word,

that the fruit of the Spirit

would bear witness to this world

of your Light.

Help me Lord,

you are worthy.

Amen.
