Cleanse My Heart

Lord,

give me a willing spirit,

a soft and open heart,

to listen to your voice

and receive your Word.

Help me to accept your correction,

embrace your discipline,

and to trust in you,

not my own strength, intelligence, and power

(or lack of).

Help me to draw near to you,

and not the idols presented by the world.

I repent of clinging to my comforts,

numbing through addictions,

distracting myself through busyness and shiny pursuits,

instead of honestly, humbly turning to you.

Cleanse and purify my heart,

give me clean and pure lips,

choice and blessing words,

and let me call on your Name,

in peace and unity with your Spirit.

I praise you and bless you.

Amen.
