God, May Your Desires Be My Desires

52 Simple Prayers

God has no reluctance granting the desires that he has placed in your heart. So surrender your wants to him and invite him to replace them with what he wants. His are far better, infinitely so, than what you could ever imagine.

A Simple Prayer for a Great Year:

God, as I stand at the starting line of a brand new year, I intend to run strong and finish well. But I will need your help to run in a way that glorifies you. So my sincere prayer is that you would replace my desires for the things that I would like to achieve and put within my heart the things that you desire to accomplish. I confess that the wants of my flesh are strong, and so are the influences of this world. Purge me from all the selfish, sensual and sinful forces, both internal and external, that daily bombard my mind and compete for my affection. Protect my heart and my mind; help me to delight in you continually. Dear Father, place your desires in my heart, then grant them I pray. And when this year draws to a close, may I have been a living example of one for whom you have granted the desires of the heart.
