The Cry of My Heart

Father God,

Search my heart and illuminate my spirit,

Fill my soul with the warmth and breathe of Your everlasting love,

Give me the strength to seek You in all I do,

Grant me wisdom and clarity so I may discern and obey Your voice,

Forgive me for my many failures,

Lift me up and restore me when I am weak and broken,

Break me and humble me when I am victorious,

In all my ways, may I acknowledge and glorify You,

As You lead me, may I be a faithful leader to those whom you entrust to me,

Please protect me and my family from the enemy,

Guard us from those who would seek to do us any harm,

May I always strive to be quick to love, quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger,

Lord, You are the vine; I am a branch,

Help me to remain in You and You in me, so that my life might bear much fruit,

Apart from You, I can do nothing; With you, ALL things are possible,

Thank You for being so patient with me,

Thank You for extending grace and redemption to me through Your son, Jesus Christ

I remain eternally grateful for Your many blessings,

May my life be a worshipful reflection of my gratitude unto You,

It is with great praise and a joyful heart that I remain humbly Your servant,
