TURN OUR HEARTS

 
Psalm 119:36


"Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain." NIV


"Incline my heart with thy testimonies, and not to covetousness." KJV


Why would we need to pray daily for the direction of our hearts? If we assume we are free of selfish desires and ambitions, we are clearly deceived. Our hearts have natural human tendencies to satisfy our senses. Without being alert to this and praying daily that our hearts be spiritually directed toward the ways of God, we are in danger of becoming lukewarm and ineffective for our Lord.


Heavenly Father, how we pray diligently that you keep our hearts turned toward You and Your Word so that we will not fall into seeking to satisfy our own selfish desires. We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
