“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your Presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me by Your generous Spirit.” (Psalm 51:10-12 NKJV)
I thank You, Father, for the indwelling Presence of Christ Jesus in my heart and life, but I ask that every area of my heart that has remained blocked off to His Presence and Lordship be opened wide by the Holy Spirit. I submit to You, Lord Jesus, and ask that You rule and reign over all of my heart! Lord, make the crooked places in my life straight and every rough place smooth. Thank You for restoring to me the joy I knew when I first found You!
