Deliver me, my Lord, for the snare has been set by the enemy and I cannot see where it is placed along the path. Remove from my soul the cavernous craving which has created a cavity longing to be filled. Take away every unholy desire and create in me a pure heart. I need You to equip me to fight. I need You to show me how to be saved from the ruin of my sorrows. Lift me to the rock that is higher. Take me to the depths of intimacy with You because that is where true fulfillment is found. What a blessed honor to come into Your presence and fall at Your feet weakened from my own iniquity. I know that You, alone, can strengthen me, Lord. I know that You alone have the power to guard my heart steps. So, I cast my backsliding soul upon Your merciful power, Lord God. I fall before You in utter contempt for the feeble offering I bring. Make something good out of Your servant’s messy heart, Lord. Take me as I am, but leave me not this way. Truly, I desire to be who You designed me to be that I might glorify Your Name with the legacy of this life. Under the canopy of Your Word in Psalm 51:3-4, 10-12 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
Against You, You only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in Your sight;
so You are right in Your verdict
and justified when You judge.
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from Your presence
or take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Psalm 51:3-4, 10-12, NIV
