“Lord, the God of Israel, there is no God like You in heaven above or on earth below—You who keep Your covenant of love with Your servants who continue wholeheartedly in Your way.”1 Kings 8:23
Father, You alone are God and there is no other. I thank You that You are a God of covenant, a God of love, who keeps His covenant with His people.
Lord, make us a whole hearted people! I pray that Your Spirit will be poured out on Your church, healing our divisive ways, healing our complacency. Call us up higher than we are, Lord. I pray You would heal our half heartedness, our divided hearts toward You. I pray that You will call for an end to unholy alliances, unholy friendships, unholy truces, and that You would call us once again to walk as the sanctified, holy, called out people of God.
I pray that all other ways but Your ways would quickly become dead ends for us. May we come back into alignment with Your footsteps, Jesus, and follow only after You.
In Your jealousy for us Lord, would You rise up and contend with the one who contends for the affections and the wholeheartedness of Your people. May You be our first and only love, may ours eyes become fixed on You alone, and may we find our delight in following only after You.
Heal our hearts, Lord, and make them wholly Yours.
In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
