Monday Morning Meditation: Deep Calls to Deep

Deep calls to deep
at the roar of your waterfalls;
all your breakers and your waves have gone over me.

By day the Lord commands his steadfast love,
and at night his song is with me,
a prayer to the God of my life.

                                         Psalm 47:7-8

Take me deeper, Lord.

Deeper into a recognition of my need for you,
so I might not bear the burden of living this day in my own strength,
but in Yours instead.

Deeper into an awareness of my sin,
so I may repent and be made clean once again.

Deeper into a knowledge of Your Word and Way,
so they may take root in my thoughts and bear fruit in my actions.

Deeper into the sea of Your love for me,
so I can know Your same love for all people.

Deeper into Your grace,
so I may live unfettered by legalism,
a captive who has been set free.

Deeper into Your Spirit’s revelation and power,
so I may know your purpose for me,
and that I might fulfill it.

Deeper into Your sea of mercy,
so I may experience your heart
for those who are lost.

Deeper into Your healing presence,
so I can be made whole and by my touch,
others may be also.

Take me deeper, Lord.
