but also with the one who is contrite
and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit
of the lowly and to revive the heart
of the contrite.”
Isaiah 57:15 NIV
Dearest Father in heaven,
A fallen world continues to produce sin, hurt and pain. May it not be the significance of what is most important. Do not allow the ground to be saturated in the darkness of sin, even though the heart of man has escaped far from you.
Come near, O Lord, create new growth through the nurturing of your voice. Let the sound continue to fertilize established roots. Shine down in radiant splendor on the life that lives deep within the soil of your land. Firmly plant your Spirit as the replacement to the root-bound heart.
Water and refresh each season of new life. Produce an unforeseen harvest that reflects the nature of who you are in abundant mercy, grace, and newness. Oh Lord, revive the heart that lacks the ability to receive, especially when you desire to give so much. Bring unity to your garden. By your presence be made known.
In Jesus name, amen.
