My heart is a voice crying from the wilderness of my soul. Lord, hear me. Only You have the power to remove the binding chains of selfishness which hinder any progress toward freedom. Only You can weed the ground of my heart where weeds of rebellion and discontent have grown up. Forgive the wavering tendencies of my soul, Lord. Let my convictions be rooted in Your truth. Meet me, Lord Jesus, in the deep valleys of my soul where self-seeking temptations thrive and carnal inclinations flourish. Make the crooked path straight so that I can see where I need to go. Claim my wavering heart as Your own so that I walk the way of holiness marked out for me. Crush the mountain of pride that blocks my eternal view. Set me right with a contrite heart, humbled before You, rejoicing in the majestic wonder of grace. Lord, You are King of Kings. You are Lord of Lords. There is none like You. Who am I that You have called me Your own? In all things, let me be honest and true, a follower of Christ shaped by devotion. Under the Word given in 2 Samuel 7:18 and the authority of Christ, I humbly pray.
Then King David went in and sat before the Lord and said,
“Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house,
that You have brought me thus far?”
2 Samuel 7:18, ESV
