Writer friend, Mitzi Smith, sends along the following heartfelt pray, filled with truth from God's eternal Word:
Shepherd of My heart, Keeper of my nights and my days, may I ever be found hidden in You. May I abide in Your tent forever. Please, keep me in perfect peace as my heart and mind are stayed upon You. Let me rest my weary head upon Your shoulder. I dwell in You for my very life and being. I long to dwell with You in Your sanctuary. Please, renew my heart and mind as the world throws so much in one day. Keep me safe in You. I want to walk with You in the cool of the day. I am listening for Your “whispers” to lead me to take up my pen for You. Let the River of your Living Water pour forth from Your Holy Hill. Your waters are what a weary people long for as refreshment and renewal.
We press in to take hold of all that You have for us. We receive our inheritance from Your own hand. Those nail-scarred hands that bled Righteous blood are gentle. They reflect Your tender, compassionate heart towards us. Better is one day in Your courts than 1,000 elsewhere.
Thank You for being my Daddy God, the One I can bring all of my cares to. If I could just sit with You, moment by moment until eternity passes by. Let Your Kingdom come, Lord. Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen and Amen.
