My prayer for today!
Lately, I’ve been grieving my sinful nature. I really don’t like how ugly my heart can be at times. I hate and despise this wickedness I see inside of me. I just want to be free from the sins that so easily entangle me, so I can better run the race You have marked out for me.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” ~Hebrews 12:1
Lord, I want more of You in me. I need more of You in my life. I need Your Truth to saturate my entire being. Lord, I ask that You will empty me of my sinful tendencies and desires. Lord, please create in me a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
“How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” ~Psalm 119:9-11
I need more of You! More of Your love, Your joy, Your peace, Your strength, Your humility, and Your gentleness in me. Please strip anything in me that is not of You and make me into a pure vessel that You can work through.
“If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.” ~2 Timothy 2:21
Lord, I desire to be an instrument played by Your fingertips. I desire to be the canvas You paint magnificent colors on. I desire to be a servant to You my King. I pray that my life will serve Your purpose and advance Your Kingdom daily.
“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” ~Ephesians 2:10
