Change my heart

A lot of our prayers seem to focus on convincing God to change His mind. But God is eternal, all-knowing, and unchanging.

God is love, and is always reaching out to help me come to Him. Whatever I pray isn’t going to change that.

So really, these prayers are about changing MY focus, my outlook, my heart.

When I ask Him to lead me to heaven, I’m asking Him to do something He’s ALWAYS been doing. So it’s about me following His lead.

When I ask Him for forgiveness? He’s already open to forgiving me. So it’s about me asking, and accepting, His gracious gift. Accepting His forgiveness means I have to change my actions. Repent and change my ways. Follow Him.

These prayers are the tools to shape my heart to what God desires for me. And for everybody.
