My glorious Father in heaven, before Your name alone will I bow my heart. Let me receive Your implanted Word with the force of power Your Holy Spirit bestows upon me so that my soul thrives by remaining unstained by this world. Etch Your truth deep upon the surface of my heart until it beats completely in sync with the holiness of Your will. Use me, Lord God, for the shining light that encompasses all goodness and grace. Use me for the living water that quenches the thirstiest of souls. I am Your vessel, Lord. I am clay in Your mighty hands. May You delight to mold me, shape me and conform me to Your image so that I am turned into the fruit-bearer for Your Kingdom which I was designed to be. In loving prayer under the Word of James 1:21 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I come before You, my God.
Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness
and receive with meekness the implanted word,
which is able to save your souls.
James 1:21, ESV
