Turn my heart to you
Posted By: Halder, Jon On: 21 Feb 2017 06:07:01

Lord, I know I am to love you with all of my heart, soul, and strength.  I know that this is the greatest command.  I think I may even actually be doing that at times.  But my father, I admit that there are many times that I fail to do that.  I put food ahead of You, thinking it will soothe me.  I put other people and relationships ahead of You, thinking that making them happy will give me peace instead of turning to You for that peace.  I have these idols in my life and I know that they are wrong, that I am wrong.  Please forgive me.  Turn my heart toward You always and keep You first and foremost as my provider, as my comforter, as my protector and my help.  Turn my heart toward following Your lead and seeking Your will in all things - knowing it is good, perfect, and pleasing.

Thank You for everything.  For my life, wife, family.  For my job, our home, our cars, our security.  For the community of believers we are a part of, Your church.  For our neighbors that we can witness to and be examples of You for.  For this online prayer journal and the ability to come to You with our praise, thanksgiving, and even our requests.  For hearing us.  For loving us so much that You were willing to live here as a man and suffer more physical, emotional, and spiritual pain just so that we could be reconciled to You.
