(Jeremiah 17:9) says the human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. So much so that I nor anyone of us really knows how bad it is? (Proverbs 15:11) says that even Death and Destruction hold no secrets from You. So how much more do you know my human heart!” Lord, have I tried to hide my sins like other people do, concealing my guilt in my heart? (Job 31:33) For “how can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults.” (Psalms 19:12) Father, I ask that you cleanse my heart through faith (Acts of the Apostles 15:9b).
(Proverbs 21:1) says “a king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; he guides it wherever he pleases.” And (Proverbs 22:11) says “whoever loves a pure heart and gracious speech will have the king as a friend.” Father, “create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me.” (Psalms 51:10) A heart that will not desert you or stray away from your path.” (Psalms 44:18) Nor, a heart that is filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness (Matthew 23:28b) Lord, may my heart cease to be filled “with bitter sorrow and unending grief” (Romans 9:2) and as “my heart hear you say, “Come and talk with me.” my heart’s response will be, “ Lord, I am coming.” (Psalms 27:8) “Lord God change my heart and the hearts of all my descendant, so that we will love You with all our heart and soul and so we may live!” (Deuteronomy 30:6). Lord, give us one heart and put a new spirit within us. Take away our stony, stubborn heart and give us a tender, responsive heart,” (Ezekiel 11:19). So that we will “obey your instructions; and put them into practice with all our heart.” (Psalms 119:34) In Jesus name, amen!
