I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you.

Ezekiel 36:26 NIV

Enlarge my heart O God,
May your love encompass
The very centre of my being.
May I might worship You
In Spirit and in truth,
In freedom and transparency,
In honesty and purity,
In love and obedience.

Enlarge my heart O God,
May Jesus reside
at the centre of my life,
Of my thoughts and my prayers,
Of my words and my actions.
May His love radiate
Through every aspect of my life,
Out to your people, your world.

Enlarge my heart O God,
May your Holy Spirit
capture my attention,
inflame my passion,
Illuminate my path.
May I respond to your voice
With praise and thanksgiving
With love, justice and mercy.

Transforming love, may the love and goodness of God, the grace and compassion of Jesus and the power and presence of the Holy Spirit transform our lives and our world. Amen.
