Teach me to Abide in You

Oh, thank You Lord Jesus, my heavenly Vine, for the fullness of Your blessing towards me. I want to know and understand more and more of what it means to simply rest in You – to abide in You in sweet union with my Saviour and remain in blessed communion with You in ever closer intimacy.

Teach me Lord and train me to rest in Your love – guard me and guide under the shelter of Your canopy, and reveal more and more of Yourself to me I pray,

AMEN
