Burn into my heart the fire of your zeal, Oh Lord, and awaken me
from my spiritual slumber.
Restore to me the joy of my Salvation, Oh Lord, and remove from my
heart the feelings of discouragement which have accumulated as a result
of the many setbacks, failures and defeats that I have suffered during
the past years of my life.
As Paul said, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one
thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching
forth unto those things that are before, I press toward the mark for
the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Purge from me the devastating effects of the memories of my past
defeats, Oh Lord, and instill into my heart and mind a fresh vision of
the things to come.
