Give me a heart like thine, LORD

O, LORD, my God, I understand more and more the importance of humility of heart, a contrite spirit, and the need to be broken before You. In this state, the beautiful character of the Lord Jesus can be formed and developed in me.

Search me O God, and show me areas where I have not yet submitted to Your leading and guidance, for I desire my life to be a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to You. In Jesus’ name I earnestly pray, Amen.

“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” (Psalm 51:17)
