Cultivate in me a deeper appreciation for you, Father as I stand here amazed and in awe of how long and how far Your grace and love has carried me. My heart is filled with praise and thanksgiving as You draw me into a deeper level of trust in You.
I am ready for a greater level of freedom and stronger sense of clarity. Guide me, Father as I search for the beauty in all the ashes of my life. Nourish the seeds of trust in my heart, I long to put down the influences of this world in order to hear your instruction and distinguish you voice from all the noise.
Usher my footsteps in this endeavor to find the touch of your hand in all my broken memories and shattered dreams. Open the eyes of my heart through this experience to bring clarity and a new vision to see more than just a pile of destruction in the aftermath.
Build my trust and help my faith during this season of release, healing, and reconstruction. Fill my heart and spirit with strength and let the weight of Your glory tear down and remove old habits and strongholds. Shed Your light in all the dark crevices exposing all the areas of my life that keep me from experiencing more of You. Draw near to me and give me a steady spirit as you create a masterpiece of me that can only be built by Your perfect hands.
Purify my heart through this trial and time of testing, refine me, and bring me into total dependence on You and You alone.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”John 16:33
