Prayer

Spiritual surgery

The word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (Hebrews 4:12; NIV).

Christ performed a spiritual circumcision – the cutting away of your sinful nature (Colossians 2:11; NLT).

The Lord your God will change your heart […] so that you will love him with all your heart and soul (Deuteronomy 30:6; NLT).

 

Lord,
I’m definitely
Not perfect.

I could have
Cosmetic surgery,

To reduce or enlarge
Different parts of my body.

But what would be the point
Of such superficial change?

Instead, I’d rather have
Your spiritual surgery,

To reduce my sinfulness,
Expand my mind,

And make my heart
As big as yours.
