Oh, my Lord Jesus, I am coming to you for cleansing so that the day of my salvation may be renewed, and I will once again walk freely in your spirit. Take my life and sweep away the ashes and soot, remove even the tiniest residue so that your complete joy will be restored to me and I will be revived!
I want your "unspeakable joy" that my soul once rejoiced in, so that I may worship you in awe and adoration. Let me sing songs that set in motion my feet to tapping and incite these broken bones to dancing.
Lord, keep my spirit fueled and burning with a fire that will not be smothered or extinguished by the baggage of this world. When I am tempted to quit in difficult times; let me pray and seek you all the harder.
I want a fresh start with the God of my salvation, I want you to breathe new life into my soul and spirit! Lord, only you can shift the direction of the winds, but, please help me to fine-tune my sails so that I ride on currents with you!
Cast out the rubbish that keeps me landlocked and carry me to the higher grounds of holiness. Search me, cleanse me so that your purity and glory will flow freely throughout my life.
You commuted my death sentence, God and lead me to my salvation through your Son Jesus Christ. For the rest of my life, let me sing the anthems to your life-giving ways! Unseal, my lips, dear God; and I will let loose with praise, for you and your "unspeakable joy!"
