My Prayer

You renew my soul, Oh Lord!  You heal my brokenness and bring new life into my bones.  You are like springtime in my heart!  The dead of winter is banished and the light of a new risen sun brings warmth to my soul!  My spirit screams with joy, "Lord, I am Yours!  Live in me!  Live through me!  Let the world see Your beauty."

You are the Bright Morning Star bringing light into my dead life!  You are my Hope!  You kiss away my sorrow and place joy in my heart.  You encourage me when I am weary, and open my blind eyes that I may see Your never ending, all consuming love for me!

I am not worthy of Your favor, yet You bless me again and again!  You have lifted me out of the depths of Hell and brought me to Your side!  You walk hand-in-hand with me through this desolate and unforgiving world.  You reveal to me that I am special, I have been chosen for a time such as this.  As my Teacher, You are relentless in Your desire to instruct me in the ways of the Kingdom.  You grieve each time I stumble because I didn't study Your Word and found myself broken and shattered by my sins of pride and loathing and self righteousness.

But You still don't leave me nor do You forsake me.  You are ever present in my life, even when I feel I can 'go it alone.'  Thank You for forgiving me of my arrogance and for gently bringing me back to the road of righteousness. 

Each breath is a new blessing, and each step I take with my eyes towards Heaven is a step closer to being an example of You.  Thank You for opening my eyes to the truth that I am not promised Heaven because of good works or something I could have done, but because I turned my life over to Jesus and was forgiven my sins.

Thank You that I am saved by acknowledging Jesus as my Lord and Savior, by wholeheartedly confessing that He came from Heaven to live as a man to be the last High Priest in the order of Melchizedek, to be the Sacrificial Lamb, to take my sins, the ones I already committed and the ones yet to come, for I am imperfect, and to die for me!  For me, a sinner!  I confess that You rose again after three days and with glory and honor fulfilled the promises of God to give me back my inheritance, to sit eternally by Your side in Heaven!

Thank You Jesus!  Thank You for giving me freedom!  Thank You for being my Savior, my Teacher, my Healer, and Deliverer.  Amen.

Thank You for mending my broken heart and broken body. Thank You that the more I seek You, the more I find You,  and the more I find You, the more I love You!  I am Yours!  I am renewed!  I am refreshed!  I have tasted the Living Water and the Bread of Life!  My soul sings in joy!  Hallelujah Jesus!  I love You!

"The Lord is with me always, even unto the end of the world."  Matt 28:20

  2. Wow, Deirdre, this is beautiful. I'm glad I could start my morning with this prayer as I woke up with remorse for yesterday's sins. The prayer also revealed to me why I often cringe at phrases like "I am not worthy." I thought it was because I was proud. I realize now it's because I am ashamed. I'll have to work on that.

  6. Derdre,
    You are certainly a sister in Christ. This brought tears to my eyes and heart as I want to be and feel as close as this video protrays. The Lord is my Savior and "You Shall not Want" the promise that I always hang on to when down. The peace I find is always at the waters edge and in your video, it calms the nerves and soul that are so troubled much of the time.
    Thank you for this special video. I have shared it on my Twitter for all to have this same joy!
    God Bless and Keep You,
    Rosemary "Mamie" Adkins
