My heart is plagued by this world and so I run to You, Jesus, falling at Your feet. May my heart collide with Yours until You and I are one. I am desperate for cleansing. O LORD; make my soul clean. My eyes cannot see beyond this life. Yet my future is past to You, O LORD. My feet are unsteady, the ground gives way. Yet with Your help I can walk the path before me. Crushed beneath the weight of my sin, I reach for You, my Savior. Pull me out of the rubble as only Your strength can do. My life is revived by Your touch. What once shriveled now grows. Though the enemy pulls me, I can fight him by the power of Your Word. Though wrong voices drown out Your truth, O LORD, You can make me hear again. With open arms I run to You, my LORD. You –who holds the keys to my heart. You –who leads me into each moment. My LORD, my Jesus, Your death brought me life. Your blood covered me with purity in Your sight. Eternity has begun though I cannot always see it. You give me glimpses of what is to come because my hope is in You. When I fall, You pick me up. When I am weak, You give me strength. I am free from the weight of this world. My heart is renewed. My spirit abides in the vine. Your Word is my delight and my protection. In You, alone, let me live. In You, alone, may my heart be nourished in love. O LORD, I am Yours, let me hear Your voice. Let my heart resonate with Your will. Under the power of the Word given in John 17:11 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow at Your throne in prayer.
I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, protect them by the power of Your Name, the Name you gave Me, so that they may be one as We are one.
John 17:11, NIV
