Jesus, hold my heart in Your hands. Massage away the aches and pains of life as You re-calibrate its rhythm to sync with Your will. Open my ears to hear the drumbeat of heavenly mercy as You march through time and history with the authority of Your authorship. Tear down the walls that hinder the powerful working of Your Holy Spirit. Reach my desperation with Your grasping hand as the truth of the gospel penetrates the hardness of heart that puts space between us. Rebuild me with truth. Reshape me with faith. Mold me with hope. Upon the altar of Your love, I lay down my corrupted heart. Give me a new one, Lord. Under the Word of Psalm 51:10 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
Create in me a new, clean heart, O God,
filled with clean thoughts and right desires.
Psalm 51:10, TLB
