.Create in us a softened, clean, healed, whole heart...
A heart that is cultivated and fertile to receive Your Word and Truth...
A heart that is filled with the full measure of Your unconditional, merciful love and grace.
Weed out and remove the things that bind us and cause us to separate ourselves from You, Lord.
Plant Your seeds in the soil of our hearts, Father, and grow our roots deep...nourish and flourish us with Your Living Waters.
And let us bear an ever-increasing yield of fruits of The Spirit, according to Your Will for us in Jesus Christ.
May we all have ears that hear and a penetrable heart, for Your Glory..
In The Name of our Holy and Righteous Savior, Jesus Christ,
"Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.”
Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
No one lights a lamp and covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he sets it on a lampstand, so those who enter can see the light.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
