O Lord, how I long to be different. How I long to turn from my twisted and dysfunctional patterns and habits, in order to be more whole and holy. I long to be set free from my own self-consumed ways of being and seeing, and to become more and more like you. I long to be more loving instead of self-centered, I long to be more compassionate rather than competitive, and I long to care more about your will and your work than I do about my own.
Continue, O God, to transform my heart. Grow your grace in me and let it flow freely and effortlessly from my heart and life. Change me from deep within. Give me more peace and less frustration. Make me more rooted and less reactive. Help me to be more caring and less annoyed.
O Jesus, fill me so full of your love that there will be no room in me for anything else.
