Today’s Prayer

My God and King who sees all and cares for every little thing, summon up the buried lies which my soul clings to unaware. Bring whatever darkness lingers in my soul to the light in order that it may be cleansed and purified, stripped of its power to haunt me, rid of its power to tempt me. In complete abandon, I give my soul full exposure to Your grace. In sweet surrender, I give my heart’s pieces into Your creative hands. Put me together anew, Lord Jesus. Take the hurts and pains of life as the paint with which You can create a masterpiece upon the canvas of my soul. I give permission to You alone to mold, shape and correct my misshapen form until the finished product resembles the glory due You, my Creator God. May the mourning of my soul transform into a graceful dance of salvation. May the torment of my past be cast away in the gladness of tomorrow. Under the beautiful word of Psalm 30:11 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray with a humble heart, O God.

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
    you have loosed my sackcloth
    and clothed me with gladness,
Psalm 30:11, ESV
