'Unite my heart to fear thy name'


“Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.” Psalm 86:11

Apart from the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, each of our hearts was united in the service of sin — we sought to go our own selfish ways. Having been brought to faith in Christ, we now have a new nature that loves God and desires to walk in accord with the truth of His Word but, in this life, we still have our old corrupt sinful nature. With the psalmist, we pray that God would unite our divided hearts to honor the name of our God and Savior in all we think, say, and do.

Unite my heart, O God, to love You, trust in You and honor You in all I think and do. I ask this for the sake of Jesus, my Savior. Amen.

[Scripture is quoted from the King James Version of the Bible.]
