By Stephen W. Hiemstra
Blessed Lord Jesus:
Cover me with your blood again today that I my mind would not wander and my heart not chase after foolish things.
Forgive my indulgences, the little foxes that trample the vineyard of my soul and consign my spirit to deserts dry and far away.
Thank you for faithful friends and devoted family.
In the power of the Holy Spirit, remind me again of my baptism, the promises made on my behalf as a child, and the fellowship of the saints. Guard my heart and mind during winter’s discontents. Deepen my faith even as I cannot walk the journey of faith without you.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
Prayer to Deepen Faith
