Dearest Heavenly Father,
I come to You today and give You my heart. I do not own it, it belongs to You. I trust You, Father God, to hold it safe in Your tender embrace. I give You permission to remove the hard shell that has formed around it, preventing me from being aware of the cries of those I love the most, my spouse and family.
I allow Your warm hands to massage it, and work out the kinks, the stony areas that have made me blind to the plight of the downtrodden and deaf to the cries of the weary. I wait as You break up the fallow ground and remove the hard places, allowing seed to once again grow.
I will rejoice in knowing that once again holy life will flow freely through my heart. I give You permission to scrub off the grit and grime of hate, intolerance and impatience, the filth of pride, arrogance, and self-serving, and to polish it back to where once again it is new, and whole, and pure.
I will honor You with the fruits of my labor. I will dedicated my life to You, O Lord, for You have made me new again today, and my once cold and dying heart, which You have made new and perfect, rejoices in love and adoration to You.
Thank You, Father, for working in me, and healing my broken heart. You are the Great Physician! My Jehovah Raffa. I adore You. I accept this beautiful new heart and promise to care for it and fill it with love from Your word daily. I will not let it suffocate to the point of near death ever again. Thank You for restoring it back to health and beauty. It shines like Your reflection!
I love You, my Father, with all I have. In Jesus' sweet name I pray, Amen.
