Prayer for Jeremiah 17:9

“The heart is more deceitful than anything else and desperately sick-who can understand it?”

Praying through Jeremiah 17:9

Heavenly Father, thank You that I am Your child and have been saved by grace through faith in Christ. Nonetheless, it is uncomfortable to realise that, like all men, my heart is deceitful and desperately wicked. I pray that You would search my heart, my motives, my conscious thoughts, and even my unconscious imaginings, to see if there is anything in me that needs to be rooted out. Purify my heart, I pray. Lord, I am so aware that these days, we are encouraged to follow the desires of our own hearts. May the deep desire of my heart be to follow only You and Your leading, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
