Your Name is great, my Father in heaven. I will glorify You in all of my praise. Lead me, Jesus, to live a life pleasing to You. Reveal to me the mystery of self-sacrifice that empowers me to crucify my flesh and take up the cross that glorifies You. Anchor me in the storm of emotion that catapults into a sea of anxiety. Shield me from the onslaught of bitterness as I endure the flaming arrows of the enemy. Make my faith strong, Lord. Make my hope persevere. Make my love overflow until it splashes Your grace over others You have placed in my path. Take me into the deep, Lord, where truth resides. Reseed my heart for the harvest, Jesus. Plant Your righteousness in me. Cleanse my heart and renew within me the joy of Your salvation. Under the Word given in Psalm 51:10 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I lay these prayers upon the altar of the King.
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Psalm 51:10, NIV
