Heart to Heart

            “…because your heart was penitent…”

            Join me in my prayer:

            “Dear Lord Jesus, I come before your presence today, to praise, glorify, exalt and magnify your most holy and wonderful name. I come to you happy and sad. Happy, because you are my God and my Savior, and I can always approach your throne with boldness and confidence. Sad, because I have sinned against you once again and I am ashamed to be in your holy presence with my sin-stained hands.

            You are my Lord and my sweet Redeemer.  You are always in me, beside me and all around me.  I thank you for your undeserved grace and everlasting salvation.  Thank you for transforming my life and for making me a useful vessel for your glory. Thank you for forgiving me seventy times seven and beyond.

            Only one thing I ask from Thee:  A penitent and tender heart---a holy heart like king Josiah’s; a heart that worships only you.

            Please Lord, take my hardened heart because of sin, and soften it with the “oil” of your Holy Spirit.  Pull out---I beg of you---all the roots of bitterness from it and dissipate the clouds of doubt, so I can see your glorious face once again.

            Give me a new heart oh Lord; a sensitive heart that stirs at the sound of your voice; that trembles every time your Word is preached or communicated in any other way.  I humble myself before you my loving Father, because I need to listen from you…when you speak to me heart to heart.

            Thank you Lord Jesus, amen.”
