Amen, Lord, I want to stop trying to be a good Christian, or to live according to what the Bible says – with my own energy! I just give myself to You right now! Lord, I want to leave all else behind – even put down all my efforts and struggling, all my striving and pushing. Just to concentrate my being on You alone!
Lord, You are my focus: You are my goal! The goal of my Christian life is not to be a better person – but it is to gain You, Lord! You have laid hold on me – now I want to lay hold on You. I want to be fully occupied with You, saturated with You, and filled with You! Lord, have more ground in my being today! I open every room of my heart, even the places I don’t know I have/hide from You. Come in, Lord, and shine in every part. Saturate me with Your holy element. Lord, occupy every inch of my heart. May my heart be Your home, where You are free to do whatever You desire to do! Re-model my inward being, re-decorate it with Yourself, just like You desire! Lord, have a free way in me! Gain what You are after in me!
Even in working and laboring for You, Lord, may You be the source, initiator, and the supply! Lord, have the first place in me, and be my unique constituting element! Lord, speak the gospel in me by saturating me and overflowing from me!
