Give Us A Heart After You!

Father,

Give us more! Give us more of YOU!  More of your presence and more of your love. More of your joy and more of your peace.  Shower your grace and favor in our lives!  Remove our hard selfishness, greed and envy.  Replace it with a “broken and contrite heart, which you will not despise.” (Ps. 51:17)   Remove doubt, guilt and the shame of sin.  Because we know we are new creatures! (2 Cor. 5:17)  Give us a heart after you!  Give a longing to please you and not men.  Ps. 37:23  So that our actions will point back to you!

“Create in me a clean heart, Oh God. And renew a right spirit within me” -Ps. 51:10

Give us a boldness to stand for truth, even if it costs us something.  May we not be entangled by the spirit of fear and worry!  Give us a heart after you, and us this vessel for YOUR GLORY!   Father, you are all I want; you are all we need.  You are our hope.  You are our source.  And “every good gift and perfect gift is from you!” -James 1:17   Keep us from offending our fellow sisters and brothers in Christ, but may we extend the same grace you have so liberally given to us, to others.

Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” -Ps. 51:12

TO GOD BE ALL GLORY!!  FOREVER AND EVER.  Amen.

In Christ’s Name.
