Lord I want to love you with all my heart and depth of soul.
As I delight in you Jesus, please give me the desires of my heart.
My soul yearns, my bleating heart cries out to be a pure heart.
O Lord, to your glory, raise up this stone to be your child.
Wash me in the blood which flowed through your heart to cleanse mine.

Grant me the petition of my heart; Jesus, remove this heart of stone.
Jesus, give me a new heart, put a new spirit in me; be my cornerstone.
Blessed be the pure in heart; for they will see how your blood purifies.

You Lord Jesus have triumphed over sin.
Yours will be the ultimate victory over evil.
Come in; conquer this desperately wicked heart.
Cut me deep with the sharp sword of the Word.
Splay open wide my heart; separate all my sins.

Jesus, I seek your clean heart. Make me a man after your own heart.
Create a clean heart within me; one with open eyes.
Blessed are the pure of heart; permit me to see you with more clarity each day.

From your heart flows springs of life; springs bubbling up in my life.
Hold me under the healing waters of the pool welling up to eternal life.
Raise me, save me through the washing of rebirth and renewal.
Pour out your living water into my heart by the Holy Spirit.
As I course through life, let me leave a wake of your goodness and peace.

Jesus, I want to enter your kingdom, being born of water and the Spirit.
Create in me a clean heart; generously give me your steadfast Spirit.
Blessed are the pure in heart; they will see heaven open and the Spirit descending.

Lord, test my heart in the furnace of affliction, so it may be refined.
My life is a crucible; you be the fire burning off the dross of my will.
May your blaze consume my evil; through your flames, save me from pride.
Purify my heart; distill all iniquities. Spirit right renew my mind.
Make me flow like molten metal; pour me into the mold of your holy heart.

Jesus, I seek your pure heart. Refine me; cast me after your own heart.
Give me a heart of pure gold; malleable and precious in your use.
Blessed be the pure of heart; they will see your glowing power displayed.

Lord Jesus I need a pure heart; let it be a beating sacrifice I can offer you.
Lord, lead me forward from froward, onward to the essence of obedience.
Master, let me honor, fear, and serve you with all sincerity of heart.
Lord, break my spirit; as you overcame the world, prevail over me.
Master, within my heart, bind your commands, as you set my heart free.

Jesus, I seek your pure heart. Write your perfect laws in my heart.
Let the sacrifice of your blood make me a contrite heart, acceptable to you.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they have been set free, free to see you.

Lamp of the Lord, search my spirit, illuminate my innermost being.
You alone know the hidden content of my heart; turn my heart to you.
Lord Jesus, purify me by shining your light over the darkness of my heart.
Please close the distance between your thoughts, your ways and mine.
Strengthen my heart so that it may be blameless, pure in motive and deed.

Jesus, let me walk in your pure light; keep me pure until the day of your coming.
Let me live in the light of what your heart has done for me.
Blessed be the pure of heart; for they will see you are the light of the world.

Jesus, call me to peace, let your peace rule my heart.
Give me a heart of forgiveness, as you have forgiven me.
You heal the brokenhearted; Jesus bind up my wounds.
Purify me from everything that contaminates body and spirit.
Jesus, put your joy in my heart; make my joy complete.

Jesus, cause me to seek you with all my heart; open wide my heart to you.
O Lord, fulfill your purpose for me; direct my heart toward your love.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see your perfect will.

Jesus, I seek your heart of love; help me to love with all my heart.
Dear Jesus, let my mouth speak from the abundance of your heart.
As honey is sweet, let your words drip from me as a blessing for all to hear.
Dear Jesus, guide me in the practice of your pure religion of self-sacrifice.
Teach me to give myself for others, in service to you, as you gave your life for me.

Jesus, I seek your heart of love; help me to be a man after your own heart.
May it be possible for others to feel your heart through the touch of my clean hands.
Blessed are the pure of heart, for they will see you are love.

Lord, you've allowed me to explore Earth's continents, collecting rare desires.
How astonishing to find this precious desire for a pure heart, close at home.
Do you enjoy irony more than me, O Holy God who covers my unholiness?
Jesus, first you gave me the desire for purity, and I felt I had true treasure.
Then you tell me to be perfect as the Heavenly Father is perfect.

You set the standard, yours is the example, you provide the means.
Justify me by your grace, bestow your righteousness, give me faith to see.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for the will see you are the way, the truth and the life.

Jesus, I will praise you Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders.
I want to serve you Lord with all my heart and live within your grace.
Let me offer my heart to you to be holy and pleasing, as a spiritual act of worship.
My heart is set on seeking you; give me a pure heart so that I may know your face.
Please give me a beautiful heart; befitting adornment for the temple of your Spirit.

You have enlightened my heart to know and hope for the glorious inheritance.
Lord Jesus, please let me abide forever hidden within your heart.
Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see you and see your kingdom come.
Holy God, as your will is done in heaven, let it be done in my heart. Amen.

After going through a desert, being overtaken by my own sinful nature, it was almost impossible to pray. What a blessing it was to read out this prayer and experience that even though I am often unfaithful, God is always faithful.

Beauty, how I long for it in my heart and mind, but how difficult it is to fully release my sinful nature.

I pray that the Holy Spirit will fill each reader of this prayer with hearts and minds that reflect the heart of Christ, so that we may selflessly do his will.

WOW! I don't know who *you* are, but I have read this prayer and my heart has jumped in fear & joy. I am inspired to look at the process, and not just get caught up in a teenie tiny spot of my life.

My desire since I was a little girl is to see God's face. And it was only a couple of years ago that Abba Father finally took off the scales from my eyes and made me see Him, albeit hazily and still in a myopic state due to my infancy of faith. He promised me then that I would be able see Him more clearly if I continue my journey of faith with Him and only if I develop a pure heart. This prayer is my prayer also and expressess eloquently the desires of my own heart....thank you Ryan for sharing is clear that you are a man after God's heart. Whenever I feel my faith lagging, I go back to why I started out on this journey, i.e. to seek God's face, and I am always renewed in spirit. It is not an easy journey and yes, it is ironical that in seeking a pure heart, God requires us to be perfect....just like His son Jesus. So I continue on this journey, putting my faith in Him to perfect me and purify my heart. May the glory of God be on us always....
