Purity Prayer, For God To Search My Heart

Heavenly Father, I long to be like Jesus and know that in myself I will always fall short of His standard of perfection and purity, but Lord I pray that You would examine my inner heart and secret thoughts and identify in me those areas that need to be rooted out, so that Christ may live in me and work through me to Your greater glory.

Give me the grace to recognise any impure areas in my life that need to be rooted out – and make me willing to engage in the painful process of having all that dishonours Your name cut away.. by the Holy Spirit’s scalpel of truth. Help me to keep the eyes of my heart fixed on Jesus Christ my Lord and grant me the purity of heart and integrity of spirit that is becoming of a vessel fit for Your use.

Begin to search me today O Lord and know my heart, and see if there is any impurity of heart, evil intent or prideful thoughts and may I be willing to be stripped of everything that is not of You, so that I may be pure and holy in Your sight, in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

“Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many things that I can learn from the Psalms and prophets of old and thank You that I have been credited with righteousness, by faith in Christ. Prevent me from seeking after the transitory treasures of this world, and may I remember the glorious of the heavenly Kingdom that are mine, when I go to be with Jesus and see Him as He is. Keep me low and the cross and humble before You and use me to witness the many millions that are yet unsaved, and I pray that You would bring many more to faith in Christ, before it is too late. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

“As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.”
(Psalm 17:15)
