Desires Of My Heart


show me how you delight in me,

how you rejoice over me with singing,

let me see myself rightly through your eyes,

not thinking too low or too highly of myself,

as dark but lovely.

Let me delight, rejoice, and worship you rightly,

following your ways.

Grant me your desires,

place them in my heart,

root them deeply,

water and grow,

nurture and strengthen them,

pour out revelation and anointing,

and bless your desires within me,

that I’d long for and walk only in your best for me.

Let your thoughts that outnumber

all the grains of sand on the seashore,

percolate around and within me,

help me to hear your Voice,

sense your presence,

constantly revealing,

making your Self known to me.

Go before me,

hem me in from behind,

and let me walk by your side,

in intimate fellowship all the days of my life,

known by you.



Fully Me For You

I praise you for caring for my heart,

I trust your faithfulness to me.

Grant me wisdom, knowledge, understanding,

discernment, and insight,

into who you are,

who you created me to be,

how I function,

who I am and who I am not,

and the pleasant boundaries,

the wise limits you’ve placed around my life.

Help me to understand your call

to right stewardship, responsibility

over my heart, mind, body, energy, and time.

Let me accept and embrace

the gifts, talents, and strengths you’ve given me,

what motivates and fulfills me,

the people and situations that may trigger,

and grant me the humility, wisdom, love, and grace

to shine your light through all of it.

I pray that you would help me Abba,

to glorify you with all of me,

every cell, particle, breath, action, and movement of my heart,

and to answer your highest call,

to be fully me,

fully surrendered to all of you.

I praise you and bless you Abba,
