I am desperately needy

Oh, I am desperately needy.

That’s the heart attitude God wants to hear.

I can’t make it on my own. Apart from You, Lord, I am lost, I am destitute. I am utterly, utterly dependent upon You.

I need Thee every hour.

Lord, it’s not my husband, it’s not my brother, it’s not my sister, it’s not the deacons, it’s not the pastor, it’s not the young people. It’s me, O Lord, standing in the need of prayer.

Oh God, how I pray that You would help us to see our spiritual need, to agree with You. Forgive us for being blind, for being self-deceived, for being deluded, for thinking we’re fine when You know the truth.

And oh God, open our eyes. Open our hearts. May we humble ourselves and agree with You. Then may we receive the prescription, the tonic, the provision that You have made to deliver us from our lukewarmness.

Lord, have mercy on us all.

I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
