A Deep Abiding with My Heavenly Vine

Dear Father, who art in heaven, thank You that YOU are my heavenly Husbandman and that You tend my life with such care and concern. Cleanse me and prune me and take away anything that you discover in me that does not glorify Your holy name.

Thank You Father that I am a heavenly branch that is united to my heavenly Vine, the lovely Lord Jesus Christ. May His life flow through mine as sap flows through the branch that is engrafted into its parent stem. Fill me with and inflow Your fullness so that I may live and move and grow and bear fruit as I abide more and more in You,

Amen.
