My heartfelt prayer

When I thought I had it all,
The beauty, the brains and the fame,
And I felt the world could be spun like a key in my hand,
And that I could have anything if only I believed in myself…

But I knew I was missing something,
There was a vacuum within me which could not be filled,
Not with wealth, with knowledge nor with acts of charity,
I later found out what was missing: true love.

I thought love was when someone told you he cared,
Made you laugh even when you were hurting inside,
Gave you gifts but of course a return gesture in kind was expected,

That was until I saw You on the cross, naked, beaten, bruised,
Tortured and spat at so that I would not have to suffer the same fate,
And You looked down at me with love in Your eyes and said,
“It is finished.”

All I had to do was lay down every burden on my heart
At the foot of the cross where grace and mercy abound.
Indeed beauty is vain and knowledge is nothing without You in it,
So strip me of everything that I have idolized, break down every altar
I have built with the earthly things I own
Purge me and cleanse me from any sort of pride.

Take my world apart Lord and be my world,
Be the center of my life and my world
As I cast any crown I have at your feet
And surrender myself entirely to you,
Please teach me how to love You and others,
Teach me how to serve others and let others
See Your light in me and help me draw them
Into your marvelous light.

As I come to know you, Lord help me not to stray away,
I say this also on the behalf on my fellow believers,
Help us to be there for one another as we grow together
In Your grace.
Thank You for taking my place on the cross,
I am totally indebted to you, Jesus
Let Your will for me be done
Cause Your will is always the best.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
