Give me Your joy

May the overflow of my heart reflect your glory
Let the fire of your love overwhelm inside of me
Like a mighty volcano that must be released

Make my soul restless for your beautiful presence
Envelop me with the embrace of the Spirit
Give me the faith to stand for your justice

Make all my desires be only from you
May I pray not merely for happiness, but for joy
For Your joy is so much greater than this world’s happiness

May the peace of Christ be so intertwined with my soul that nothing can take it away
May the love of Jesus be so completely filling
That the conflict with the flesh becomes nothing but a distant memory

My God, I ask that you would use me,  fill me and mold me
Lord, may my life, in spite of me and all my failings
Glorify your perfect, wonderful, loving Holy name
