Today’s prayer is the second of a linked pair which came to me last Wednesday morning. For those who are interested, the first part is called “My way”, and here is a link to it: https://wp.me/p45bCr-e39.
Much study wears you out (Ecclesiastes 12:12; NLT).
No need to study,
No need to wait,
No need to doubt, Lord:
You are my faith.
No need to waver,
No need to quote,
No need to fear, Lord:
You are my hope.
Father, around me,
Spirit, within me:
You are my love.
Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).
God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).
There is …one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God (Colossians 3:1; NIV). .
We believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory (Romans 8:23; NLT).
I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine (Song of Songs 2:16; NIV).
I jumped up to open the door for my love (Song of Songs 5:5; NLT).
A reading from Psalm 139:5-10; NLT.
You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand! I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me.
