Prayer, Plain and Simple

“The Lord your God will change your heart… so that you will love him with all your heart and soul and so you may live!” (Deuteronomy 30:6 NLT)

“And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.” (Ezekiel 36:26 NLT)

“…Let God transform you into a new person…” (Romans 12:1 NLT)

People want a new car, new house, new clothes, new neighbors, new hair color, and a new spouse, but few people are seeking a new heart. God is offering it! It’s available for the taking. Anyone?

Father,

I am grateful for your gracious offer to give me a new heart, one that loves you, one that is tender and responsive to your voice and one that reflects your love back to everyone in my life, friend and foe alike. How can I access this heart? Through faith – just the same way I received my salvation in the first place. So in faith, I take you at your word. I receive today a new heart and a new spirit. I will walk out this new heart and care for this new spirit by my commitment to your Word and by seeking your face through prayer and worship. Praise you! I receive a new ME!

Amen
