For the next four weeks in the journey, the grace for which I'm asking is:
The ability to rejoice and be intensely glad
because of the great glory and joy of Jesus,
my risen Lord.
Oh, how I need this Lord, now, and forever. This is the life to which You have called us. Sometimes I've tasted it. Sometimes I've lived it. But oh how I need this more! Work something deep in me, please Lord, over these next four weeks. Help me to really know and live Your resurrected life, as you want me to, for Your glory.
And it reminds me of this passage, this is also my prayer for myself, and my friends on the journey:
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
Eph. 1:17-21, NIV
