Lord Jesus, you are always near. I desire to know your joy even through the tempest. Write your precepts on my heart, because my memory fails me these days. I come to your mercy seat for your favor and blessing. I come to worship in your precious and powerful name, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” (John 15:10-11 ESV)
