Selfishness and sin

Hello to every reader. This prayer came to me very unexpectedly yesterday morning, whist I was making breakfast. I wanted to convey the idea of asking to be so filled with God that my own selfishness and sin would be wholly replaced by his presence and love… 

Selfishness and sin 
* I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me (Galatians 2:20; NIV).
* No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us (1 John 4:12; NIV).
* If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God (1 John 4:15; NIV).

Living God,
Help me!

I’m full of selfishness 
And sin. 

Please come to live in me,
So I can live in you.

Fill me completely –
Soul and spirit,
Heart and mind, 
Flesh and bone
And blood.

Then, you will flow through my veins each day, 
Replacing all my selfishness and sin
With love.
