Merciful Messenger, deliver me from the wasteland of excuses. I long to leave a rich history, footprints for others to follow. Yet I’m often guilty of idleness. Spark fervor within me so those who come after me will find a clear path to You.
Speak life into any barren agendas I have, that they might bring forth pleasing fruit. I realize I can do the right thing for the wrong reasons. Purify my infected motives. Cleanse me of calculated kindnesses. Instruct me in integrity.
I’m listing for Your merciful voice, tender or stern. Enable me to sprint toward truth. Amen.
Keep me from the sins of pride; don’t let them rule me. Then I can be pure and innocent of the greatest of sins. Psalm 19:13
