Almighty God, hold Your beloved servant accountable to Your sovereignty. You are holy good all of the time, Lord. Your Name is to be praised in the simplest of moments. Lift me up to a place of understanding and willingness to take a posture of humility. Unravel the broken mess that tangles up my heart in selfish defense to the point of hindering the healing that You desire. Strip me of my pride, God, so that I am re-made in the vulnerability that opens me up to Your Spirit’s filling. Grant me a clearer view of my heart which will allow me to admit to fault and apologize in order to grow. Help me to put other’s needs above my own, especially in circumstances where I may have caused pain. Use me as a vessel to heal and minister, Lord, regardless of my own injured pride. Move me so that I have a new view of love which will bring me to authenticity in Christ. Under the word of Ezekiel 18:30 and the authority of Christ Jesus, these prayers are submitted.
Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel,
every one according to his ways, declares the Lord God.
Repent and turn from all your transgressions,
lest iniquity be your ruin.
Ezekiel 18:30, ESV
