My Monday Prayer: Prayer of Change
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Father, change me. Change my heart to love you more deeply, change my mind to know you more fully, change my will to serve you more completely. Change me from the inside out. Change my interests, my motives, my desires—may the things that are the most important to you, be the things that are the most important to me.
Jesus, change me. Bring your mighty rivers to the dry places of my soul. Feed me with the living bread that can satisfy my hungry spirit. Immerse my heart in the fountains of your all-redeeming love. Change my ashes into beauty, my sorrow into song, my restlessness into peace, my darkness into light. May the pathway you want me to walk in, be the pathway I fully follow.
Holy Spirit, change me. Be my Teacher—if I am to know truth it must come through your revelation; if I am to have understanding it must be heard through your voice; if I am to have clarity it must be seen through your light; if I am to have wisdom it must be known through your instruction; if I am to experience change it must come through your power. May the anointing of your abiding presence be the oil that is poured upon me.
