Father, there is a place that needs to exist in me, as special place only for your Spirit. Make more room in my heart for you, Lord, less of me and more of you, less of my will and all of yours. Captivate my heart with your love and grace. Draw me closer into relationship with my Holy God. Renew my resolve to work for your honor and glory. Increase my boldness to speak of the great things you do for me. Forgive my tendency to follow unproductive rabbit trails that lead away from the purpose you have for me. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, the babe of the manger, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” (Luke 1: 45 ESV)
