Desires + Delight

Desires + Delight

Psalm 37:4

"Take delight in the Lord,
   and he will give you the desires of your heart."

Jesus, I have been wrestling with what I desire. I have been wrestling with the things I want. I can say I have no idea. I know I want you, I want more of your presence and I want more of your guidance. Aside from that I am unsure. Would you help me desire you? Would you help me desire you with my whole heart?

More than my words Lord, would I desire you with my actions? Would you help me desire your will for my life? Would you help me delight in you?

I want to look at your hands and know they are doing great things for me. I want to look at your word and know it says good things to me. I want to continually find your words, your rebukes and your humbling me as delightful.

Lord I want to delight in you always. When things are going as I would like and when things are in disarray. God I want to delight in you. I ask that you would fill my heart with the things that are of you and cleanse it of the things that are not of you.

I pray you would calm my searching mind, that you would heal my broken heart and comfort my aching spirit. Lord I want you and I want to delight in you.

I pray that as I delight in you, you would make known to me the desires of my heart and overwhelm me with your love.

I pray all of these things in your Son Jesus' name,

                                                                                Amen
