Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer, Plain and Simple

God Search Me: Know, Expose, Purge, Redeem the Evil in My Soul

“God you know all. You know me and love me. But not all is well. God hates the wickedness in the world, and though you love me you must hate the evil that has infected and compromised your purpose and plan for my own life. I invite you now to know and expose and then purge and redeem anything inside of that perverts your holy intent for me. You hate the sin in my life. Root it out! You have provided Jesus blood as the purging power and remedy. Bring it to light; let me walk in the light as you are there in the light, and in that place of light the blood of Jesus redeems me. I sit now and invite your inspection. I do not examine myself because I can’t trust my own evaluation. I’m far too easy on myself when I want to hide from truth and then again too hopeless and faithless once I’m forced to face my failure. Come now and examine me!”

Psalm 139:23-24 brings the climax in painful beauty!

 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
      test me and know my anxious thoughts.
 24 Point out anything in me that offends you,
      and lead me along the path of everlasting life.

    Thank You! God Bless
