Creator of my soul, have mercy on Your image bearer. There are so many things that I do not fully understand. Yet I am grateful that Your safety net of grace is there to catch me when I fall. There is a certain number of heartbeats allotted to me in this life -a number only known by You. Empower me not to waste a single one as You align the rhythm of my heart to beat in harmony with Your will. Still me enough so that the imperceptible beating of my heart is heard above the cacophony of noise that distracts my soul. Let this pulse be a moment by moment reminder of the One who sustains me, drives me, and rests me. Let the minute by minute beating be a reminder to be grateful for all that You have given me. Father in heaven, keeper of my heart, make me a delight to You as I carry out the purposes of Your heart through every beat of my own. Under the majesty of Your Word in Matthew 6:21 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I humbly pray.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:21, ESV
