Today’s Prayer

Lord, make my heart Your dwelling place. I relinquish all selfish claims to its throne. You are my Designer. You are my Creator. Lead me to the highest heights of Your love. Take me through the lowest lows of my life here in earth. Grant me the power of Your Spirit to open the door upon which You knock. I have too long been content in my internal solitude. Take up residency within me so that my life exemplifies Your righteousness. How powerless I am without You, Lord. How inclined to rebellion is my wayward heart. In grateful delight, wash me with Your provision. In sweet adoration let me welcome each morning You have given me. My soul is hungry for You, God. I stand before Your feast and humbly accept Your invitation. I open my mouth wide knowing You will fill it with Your goodness. My heart relishes this wondrous love You have extended to one as undeserving as me. Under the Word given in Psalm 81:10 and the authority of Christ, I humbly bow in prayer.

I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt.
Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
Psalm 81:10, NIV
