One flesh
With you,

One mind
With you,

One heart
With you,

And one soul
With you –

Now,
And for evermore,

The narrow way

You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate […] The gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it (Matthew 7:13-14; NLT).

You are the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).

*****************************************

 

Lord,
Show me the narrow way
To find your Kingdom –

Not through my flesh,
For all flesh dies at last;

Not through my mind,
For all minds fade away;

Not through my heart,
For all hearts cease to beat;

But through my soul,
Where you and I are one
For evermore.

Be holy

You must be holy, because I, the Lord, am holy (Leviticus 20:26; NLT).

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes (Ephesians 1:4; NLT).

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

Use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God (Romans 6:13; NLT).

********************************************

 

Lord,
May my flesh be holy,
So I can seek you today.

May my mind be holy,
So I can hear you today.

May my heart be holy,
So I can love you today.

May my soul be holy,
So I can find you today.

May my life be holy,
So I can serve you today.

Whatever happens

Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16; NIV).

I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart (John 14:27; NLT).

…………………………………………………………………………..

 

Whatever happens
To my flesh,
And bones,
And blood, Lord,

May I have
Peace of mind,
And heart,
And soul.

Christ lives

It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me (Galatians 2:20; NLT).

The kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

 

Christ lives
Within my mortal flesh;

Christ lives
Within my damaged mind;

Christ lives
Within my fragile heart;

Christ lives
Within my sacred soul.

Prayer

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30; NIV).

“I am nothing but dust and ashes” (Genesis 18:27; NIV).

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast (1 Peter 5:10; NIV).

God is light; in him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5; NIV).

For the LORD your God is a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24; NIV).

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love (1 John 4:8; NIV).

Father,
Here I am –
Though I am nothing before you.

My flesh is weak –
Please fill me with your strength.

My mind is dull –
Please fill me with your light.

My heart is cold –
Please fill me with your fire.

My soul is spent –
Please fill me with your love.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
