Contentment

Lord,

Draw me back to you,

turn my heart to you once more,

I repent of chasing the idols of my culture,

thinking they would make me happy,

feeding the discontentment of my flesh,

always longing for more.

Help me, teach me, gently train me Lord

to be content in you.

Grant me greater revelation

that I have everything I need in you,

so I can let go,

unclench my fists,

and cease my striving and grabbing.

Forgive me Lord,

have mercy on me,

wash away the deception,

cleanse my heart,

and let me see you rightly.

Return my heart to first love,

and give me the grace

to love you

with all my strength, intelligence, will, and passion once more.

You alone are worthy Lord.

Amen.
