“Dear Heavenly Father,
There is no better gift than one that comes from a heart that is pure. Devotion and love that is expressed to you can only happen through faith.
Lord, you instructed in your word that a child-like faith is the most powerful faith to have. In this position of humility, I accept my feebleness and complete dependence upon your Holy Spirit for any kind of blessing on my life.
Lord, look down upon my face. See the tears of remorse and passion I have to make my life something that will be a treasure to you. Lord, help me to become the very person you had in mind when you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I am ready to give my all to you, but when I stop to think about it, I realize that my faith is weak. I have a reason for this—I cannot be successful in this supernatural kind of life without you.
Lord, have mercy on my helplessness. Look upon your child. Look into my eyes and see my heart. My passion is to love you with my life. I give you the little life of mine that I have. I give you my days, my circumstances, my relationships, my influence, anything that can be used by you for your glory.
Lord, do not let my selfish nature stop your vision for my life. Make me the masterpiece I never could be in my flesh. I give you my heart, my desires and my faith. In return, I am waiting with great expectation for the wonderful things that you will replace those trinkets of my former nature with.
Lord, adorn me with the humility, grace and honor that is worthy of you. Dress me with a child-like faith that is so strong, so believing–that no man can ever shake what I know in my heart to be true: God is good, and His plans are greater than my dreams could ever be!
Lord, live your dreams through me. I am a willing vessel. I trust you—now, please give me the kind of trust that will not back down when the world presses in upon it. In Jesus’ precious name, give me a pure heart, clean motives and a supernatural faith in you, Amen.”
