Prayer: A Steadfast Heart

Lord God, may I not despise Your discipline when it comes. May I come to know that though You wound, You bind up; though You strike, Your hand heals. Grant me ears that hear, eyes that see, a mind that comprehends, a spirit that resonates with You and is not given to rebelliousness. May my heart be steadfast and true. Grant patience and love in times of humiliation. I place my trust in You, O merciful, holy God. Make my way straight. I set my hope and affection on You. Anoint my head with oil for Your service, O my King. Amen (Job 5.17-18; Ezekiel 12.2-18; Sirach 2.1-6; 1 John 2.20)
