Make a new heart in me, Father God. Give it capacity for the greatest love of all. Give it softness that absorbs the pain of others. Give it wisdom to reach out with your healing. Give it resilience to make it through the darkest days. Give it strength to help carry the burdens of my brothers and sisters. Give it hope to last for all my years in the land of the living and forever in heaven with you. Give it a voice so that all will know that you are the guardian of my heart. I ask on the precious name and powerful authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects the man.” (Proverbs 27:19 ESV)
