Search Me, Lord
"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my thoughts."
Psalm 139: 23
Gracious God of the Universe, we humbly come to submit ourselves, our souls and our bodies to you again. Before we plunge into the intricacies of the day, we desire to plunge deep into the depths of your grace.
Search us with the search light of your mercy. Know us, even in the places where we have hidden ourselves away from thee. Pull back the covers of our minds and examine our thoughts...even the unruly ones that refuse discipline. Test our intentions to see if there is any wicked way that would lead us astray. Examine our motivations and remove those that are self-serving.
Search us Merciful God and lead us in the way of everlasting life. Amen.
