Dear Lord God,
What a privilege to be the apple of Your eye, loved beyond comprehension and nurtured to grow into that prized fruit of Your making.
I thank You and praise You for Your lovingkindness and Your protection...
I have called upon You,
for You will hear me, O God;
Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech.
Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand,
O You who save those who trust in You
From those who rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
From the wicked who oppress me,
From my deadly enemies who surround me.
I pray that You will also hide my persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ in the shadow of Your wings.
May people be drawn to You as You are made known in my home, my church, my school, my workplace, my community, my nation and throughout the world..
In the strong name of Jesus I pray,
Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God
Jesus: The Bridegroom
Jesus is the Bridegroom. When you received Jesus Christ as Savior, you became His Bride. Just as a wife looks to a husband for protection, so you should trust Jesus, because He will guard you from the Evil One. He is the Bridegroom to keep you from sin. Just as a husband provides for the needs of his wife, so Jesus will provide for your needs. Look to Him when you lack anything. He will supply. If you have any needs, why don’t you ask Him now?
Lord, I accept Your protection; keep me safe. I rest securely in Your presence; keep my mind focused on all You do for me. I need to love You more, and I need to feel Your love. You are my Bridegroom, so I know that You will provide for me.
Jesus is the Bridegroom, and He’ll always be there for you. You don’t have to worry that God has forgotten you or that He doesn’t love you. Jesus loves you and cherishes you with the kind of love that husbands are commanded to love their wives. You belong to Him and He belongs to you. Nothing can take you away from the oneness you have with Jesus. Why don’t you tell Him about your love now?
Lord, I love You for all You’ve done for me. But most of all, I love You for Yourself. You are the perfection of beauty and grace. You are my Bridegroom and I am Your Bride. Amen.
