May the trust that I have in You not waver because of my own propensity to seek out the pleasures of this world. Lord, remove any hindering desires that will cause me to stray from the protective boundary of Your perfect love. Let my heart’s depths be examined by Your gracious eyes. Let my mind’s thoughts be sifted through Your will. Take me captive to Your authority, Jesus. For I long to serve only You. Open my soul’s ears to hear the call You have given me. Play upon my heart strings the song of life written specifically for me. I turn to You in search of delight. I reach for You in times of adversity. Make me a better version of myself, Lord, because only Your power can lift me higher than my basic emotions. Teach me to live from the Spirit even though my flesh wars within me. Let the battle be victorious because I have followed Your commands every step of the way. Take back the stolen ground of my heart, Lord Jesus, because it belongs completely to You. Fill me with the glory of heaven. Under the Word of Psalm 26:1-3 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray now and forevermore.
Vindicate me, Lord,
because I have lived with integrity
and have trusted in the Lord without wavering.
Test me, Lord, and try me;
examine my heart and mind.
For Your faithful love is before my eyes,
and I live by Your truth.
Psalm 26:1-3, HCSB
