Holy One

Holy One
Holy One, enter my heart’s sanctuary. Purify my intentions. Inspect my thoughts. Create an acceptable place with me for Your Spirit to dwell.

Smudges of greed, jealousy, and envy stain the altar of my soul. I wrestle with neediness and insecurity. Forgive me. Cleanse me. Heal me. Claim Your rightful place. Enthrone my heart.

Revise my agenda. Infuse my mission. Empower my efforts. Beacon my path.

Instruct me in adoration, supplication, and celebration. You and You only are worthy of high honor and continual praise. I commit to serve You all of my days. Amen.

Search me O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23,24

    Psalm 139:23&24 are on a sticky note next to my bed, that is my prayer too. Thank you for sharing your heart Patsy.

    I love the term you started your prayer with … “hearts sanctuary.” What beautiful words. Psalm 139 is my favorite. It offers me encouragement, hope and reassurance. Such a blessing when God uses the words of another women of faith, to remind us just how much He loves us. Thanks for sharing, your timing was perfect! God’s Peace Patsy!
