Praying Through: Psalm 37:4

The Psalm

Psalm 37 (CSB)
4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.

The Prayer

The Only Holder of My Heart

I have one prayer:

  • give me your heart.
  • for mine is frail and weak
  • and corrupted with sin.
  • it is made of stone
  • and gives me no life
  • it gives wickedness
  • and seeks to only destroy me.

If I had your heart,

  • surely I will live
  • surely I will be in your grace
  • surely I will give others your grace
  • I will see others in the a new light
  • that you love them with all of your heart
  • and your desire was to save them

Grant me a new heart, O Lord

  • then my desires will not be for this world
  • but for they will be for you alone.

Be my love.

Be my joy.

Be my king.

You are my God.

I love you.
