Prayer For A Pure Heart
Thank You, Father God, that I have been made clean through the blood of my Saviour Jesus Christ. Thank You, that my sins have been washed away forever, and I pray that as I live the Christian life I may be continuously cleansed through the washing of the Word of God, for Your Word is pure and wholesome, Your Word is light and life. Sanctify me by Your Word of grace I pray.
Help me to look deeply into Your Word of truth, knowing that the more that I am washed and cleansed by the written Word of God, the more I will come to see the lovely face of the living Word of God, my beautiful Saviour, Jesus Christ my Lord.
I pray that my heart and mind may be purified daily by the cleansing flood that comes from You, and I pray that rivers of living water may flow from You through me to others, so that I may reflect the love of God in my life and point others to Christ. May the face of Jesus my Saviour be the only thing that others see in me, for I must decrease so that He may increase. I ask this in Jesus' name,
Dear Lord God, I seek a true inner purity that only comes from You and I come to You, knowing that I stand unclean, impure and wretched before Your perfect throne of purity and truth. Lord, I ask Your forgiveness for the way that I have not honoured You with my body, knowing that I have engaged in many impure acts and unchaste thoughts. I confess that I am unworthy to even kneel before Your perfect presence, and yet I do understand that Christ died to pay the price for all my sins and all my impurities. Thank You, that by believing in Jesus Who died to pay the price for all my sins, You have washed me clean from every dishonouring act. Thank You, Father.
Help me Lord, to flee fornication and all the accompanying evils that flow from illicit sexual relationships and unclean thoughts, knowing that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who dwells in me and lives within my heart. Help me to keep my outward actions and inner thoughts pure before Your eyes, whether I am in the public view or hid in a secret place, and away from the gaze of the world's eye.
Purify the eyes of my heart and help me to keep the focus of my mind on the Lord Jesus, and develop in me I pray, thoughts, words, deeds and motives that are pure in Your sight and that will honour Your Holy name. In Jesus' name I pray,
Purify my heart O Lord my God, for I love and trust You and desire to be set apart unto You, in holiness and righteousness all the days of my life. I desire to be holy for You are holy and You have called all Your children to be set apart unto You, and to be refined in the refining fires of Your purifying love and unimaginable grace, so that we may come forth as pure gold in Your sight.
Lord, it is my chief desire to be set apart unto You, holy unto the Lord, and ready to do Your will. Lord, I cannot do this in my own strength, but only in the power of the Holy Spirit, Who alone can take my bruised and bloodied heart and change me from the inside out to become more and more like Jesus. May I like Him, walk in spirit and truth and help me to seek to do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight and honouring to Your holy name. Guide me into all truth. Help me to lay aside all the encumbrances of this world that hinder my pursuit for purity. I ask this in the name of my precious Saviour, Jesus Christ my Lord,
Heavenly Father, My desire is to have a clean and pure heart before You without the sinful desires, wickedness, bitterness, or anger that keeps me from You. Forgive me for sinning against You with my spirit, my actions, and my words. Please help me to retain the joy, happiness, and peace that You offer us throughout our trials. Because of the pain Lord, it is often difficult to smile and to keep myself from bitterness and anger. Father, I cannot do any of this in my own power. My flesh is weak and I easily become bitter. I believe that Your grace is sufficient and that I can only have a pure heart in Your strength and power. Please grant me the strength, wisdom, and power to turn this situation over to You completely. Allow my spirit, actions, and attitudes to reflect You and Your immeasurable grace. In Jesus' holy name. Amen.

I know You my Lord are at the center of our Love! Amen!
Transform me, oh Lord.
Then let me forgive,
Even those who,
Marked and stained, my heart.
For hate, let me return love,
Let me be like the Son,
Like the risen Lord,
Who gives me,
A pure heart.
In Jesus sweet name,
I want my heart to be completely free to love You, Who are Love itself.
Give me a heart free of self absorption, that I might know and love Christ in every person I meet.
Give me a heart brimming with joy and peace, that remains firmly rooted in You, no matter my circumstances.
Give me a heart free of doubt: doubt in You, Your faithfulness and perfect plan for my life; doubt in myself and the gifts You have given me; doubt in others' intentions towards me.
Give me a heart that is malleable, that can be molded and lovingly shaped, like clay in the Potter's hands, to be evermore in the likeness of Christ's Sacred Heart, Mary's Immaculate Heart, and St. Joseph's pure heart.
Give me a heart that breaks with Yours at the sufferings of others and the hurt that seems to permeate the world.
Give me a heart that can stretch and expand to welcome and nurture the lonely, the hurting, the weak.
Hide me in Your Most Sacred Heart, Jesus.
Enkindle my heart with Your gifts and fruits, my advocate, oh Holy Spirit.
Thank You for teaching me how to love.
