Lord Of My Heart

Lord,

You are the Word,

the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Let my heart wrap around your Word,

remembering, heeding, meditating, obeying,

not letting them escape my sight,

treasuring them in the center of my heart.

Your living Word is life to my soul,

bringing vitality, strength, and healing to my body.

Root me and ground me in you,

in your love,

strengthen my inner man

that I may grasp the heights, depths, widths, and lengths of your love,

your perfect love that casts out all fear,

Help me to guard my heart,

stoke the flames of your love,

I pray your fire would burn brightly within,

unquenched by defilement from the world.

Keep me, protect me from temptation and sin,

and give me grace to be wholehearted, single minded for you.

Search me and know my heart,

test me and know my anxious thoughts,

see if there is any offensive way in me,

and lead me in the way everlasting.

I bless you Lord of my heart.

Amen.
