Dear Lord Jesus,
Make yourself big this morning. Once I walk in the church doors there will be an all-out assault from the things of earth. My own mind becomes a battlefield as different thoughts and affections compete for attention when I come to worship. Remind me of your greatness. Overwhelm me with your majesty. Rebuke the lesser things of life that wish to dethrone you. Confound me by drawing my attention to all that you are, all that you have done and all that you will do. Strengthen my weakness for this struggle.
