Prayer for a change of heart

                   Prepare the way of the Lord,                   make a straight path for God.          Every valley shall be filled,                   and every mountain and hill shall be made low,          and the crooked shall be made straight,                   and the rough ways made smooth;          and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.                   —Luke 3.4-6

God of love, take my heart and change it.

Take what is rough in me and let it become gentle.

Take my fear and let it become wonder.

Take my anger and let it become sorrow.

Take my grief and let it become compassion.

Take my discouragement and let it become acceptance.

Take my doubt and let it become courage.

Take my hurt and let it become forgiveness.

Take my not knowing and let it become faith.

Take my self-centeredness and let it become love.

Take my broken heart and let it become my strength.

Take my life and let it become yours.
