Morning Prayer ~ March 7th


How I praise and thank You Father, that You know the inner thoughts of my heart, and the areas within that fragmented heart that need Your refining tool and cleansing touch ….
As the day before I surrendered my heart and life to You three years ago — I desire to thank You for bringing me to a new day through Your grace, and my heart’s desire is to re-establish a new covenant and commitment with You as You’ve set me on a new path and new journey ….
Forgive me for the mask I so often wear and the carefully designed pretence that prevents others from seeing my true self. Lord, You know my heart, and the motives behind my thoughts, and I confess that I need Your inner cleansing. Create in me a clean heart oh Lord, and renew a right spirit within me, I pray ….

For too long Lord I have lived a lie, by hiding a range of inner hurt and damaged emotions behind a smiling face — when my heart is bitter, unforgiving, angry and full of pain and unfulfilled longings …..

Change my heart from the inside and heal these hurts I pray. Please remove all the offensive impurities within, that are so offensive to You and fill me with Your peace and Your joy, so that in spirit and in truth, I may show forth Your love to others in all authentication of the real me …

Thank You Lord that a changed heart and a changed life only comes from You — and Father, I in turn desire to surrender all that I am to You. Take my life and live through me this very day ….

Heavenly Father, I pray for my church, and confess the sins of the Church, both individually and collectively for as Your Body we have not loved You as we ought nor have we followed You as faithfully as You desire. We have not loved others as You would have us and surely this must grieve You ….

We have sinned and done so many wrongs and often acted in prideful and rebellious ways — and have not paid heed to Your righteous instruction. Lord as Your Body on earth and as ambassadors of heaven we have not kept our garments spotless, but have gone our own way and followed our own desires and impulses, critical and unsympathetic in our zeal to win souls. We should be ashamed of the filthy garments that, as Your bride many of us are wearing ….

Look down on us in compassion and forgiveness we pray and purify our hearts and cleanse us of all our faults, both individually and collectively ….

You have promised that the good work that You have started in each of Your children will be completed in the day of Christ; and I ask that in Your grace You would wash us and cleanse us and purify each one of us so that as Your people we may become without spot or wrinkle so that at the appointed time we may be presented to Jesus as a pure and radiant church — to His praise and glory …..

I too, my Lord, am guilty of being less than loving, intolerant, and impatient. Please be merciful to me a sinner and help me to discern the voice of my Shepherd and enable me by the power of Your Holy Ghost to become more kind, gentle, loving, and as Your Word says be evermore in the Holy Ghost ….
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your blessed Son, Jesus, and all this we ask in His precious name, Amen ….
