Prayer For Soft Hearts

by Hazel Straub

The Fire of the Lord burns the dross from our hearts. Never let the fire of God go out. Pray, worship continually, before the throne of God. The holiness of God is a burning fire.

How we treat one another, reflects our true worship of God. Leave your gifts at the altar and reconcile with each other. (Matthew 5:24)

This is the season to turn our hearts towards each other. It is not important how others receive our love but for us to love. May we be known as a people who love, without expecting love, and acceptance from others. This is the worship that pleases God. It is easy to love someone who believes and acts like you do. It is another thing to show love towards those whose value system is different.

You are challenged to pray this prayer:

Father God, soften our hearts of stone and turn them into flesh. Give us your humble heart of love, for others. Burn everything in our hearts that are not of you.  May we answer the call to show mercy, as you showed us mercy.

Father, you told us to extend mercy, if we are to receive mercy. It begins with those whom we dislike. This is true worship. We become a burning sacrifice on your altar, when we love and show mercy to those with whom we vehemently disagree. Father, we allow the holiness of your fire, to burn the dross of alienation, judgment, hurt, and hatred, from our hearts.

In the name of Jesus, Amen!

  2. How we treat one another reflects our worship of God. We should love others, even if they don’t love us back. These two thoughts brought to mind a quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
    “Never look for justice, but never cease to give it.”

  4. These are prayers that all true believers should practice in their day to day life with their fellow human beings. The spirit of forgiveness is the key.

    • Peter, yes, forgiveness is the key! Also when we receive the love of God though Jesus, we can show that same love to others.
