My heart, my soul draws nearer to You O Lord, finding its rest and comfort in You. You are the strength when I am weak, the power when I feel powerless, giving unto me as You show me the way, binding me to the truth that gives me life.
Take me Lord, take me as I look to You for guidance and mold me into who I need to be to face this world and it’s challenges. Let nothing, save Your grace, grab hold of me or have dominion over me as I seek to become who You intend for me to become, as I try to put my troubles and my hardships behind me. Through Your love, by Your mercy I trust in You to sustain me, putting the full measure of my faith in You. Create in me a spirit for Your truth, and renew me, washing me in Your redemptive power, that I may rise in patience when everything seems so overwhelming.
Then shall my praise rise to Your ears as I give testimony to Your divine love as Your divine plan preserves me in all that I am and all that I hope to be. Then shall I kneel before Your throne in humbled awe of Your Word and Your promises.
In the name of Your Son, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.
