Purity


Wipe away the smudges from my mind; the thoughts that would hinder me and cloud my vision of You.
Let me see clearly.

Wash away my stains; those things that have been spilt on me by others and by my own indelicate handling of the situations I find myself in. I was not always right.
Forgive me Lord.

Make good the marks that I gouged upon myself by my own wilful behaviour when I knew the Holy Spirit was nudging me to behave.
I repent of this.

Purge me from my hidden sins; those secret and most hidden things.
I would be free of them.

Shine Your light into the very center of my soul; into the things that smoulder; the things that left unchecked – would define me. 
I would be pure. 

Polish me – bring out the sparkle, let me be a thing of light and beauty; able to reflect Your glory. 

So take me Lord. Turn me over in Your hands. I willingly submit myself for Your inspection and I humbly ask to be cleaned.
