Scriptures: James 4:3|1 Corinthians 10:31 | | Colossians 3:17 | 1 Peter 4:11 | Matthew 5:8 | Proverbs 16:2 | Psalm 66:18

Dear God, create within me a pure heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation that is anchored within my soul as I remember how much you love and adore me. I give you permission to sift my motives, reveal to me when they are false, when I am acting one way and being another. Jesus, you said that I would see God when I have a pure heart: Blessed are the Pure in heart for they shall see God. I want to see you through the lens of pure motives now moving forward. I commit to pausing before I do what I do and inviting you into the reason why I am doing it. I want to do everything I do in your name for YOUR GLORY not mine. Help me to return to my identity in you quicker today than yesterday. Too often I spill out of myself and take the form of the object of my desire: a promotion, affirmation, recognition, approval …all to be enough. Remind my mind that in you I lack nothing. I want my words, thoughts, deeds and actions to take the shape of your love in and through me for the sake of salvation of souls.

Free me Lord from the behavior that is fueled by the drug of approval and the disease to please. May I do all that I do with my eyes fixed on you…the author and perfecter of my identity and faith.

Dear God, put within my hand the seeds YOU want me to sow that deepen the roots of your love in this world.

Sift my motives so that my heart is convicted to release selfishness that fuels ugly behavior. I want your LOVE to be the motive behind the seeds of my behavior. More of you, less of me.

When I pray and ask for your help I trust that you will give me an action step to take that will transform me out of the ways of the world into the grace of your freedom.
