Daily devotional: Prayer of refinement

Scripture
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Psalm 139:23-24 NIV

Observation
This is a beautiful prayer of refinement for anyone who wants to be righteous and close to God!

Application
Pray this prayer.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, I worship You and praise You. Thank you for the Holy Spirit's presence in this place and for the peace that passes understanding you give to me. I love You. I seek to know You more, to be closer to You, to follow fully after You. Thank you for redeeming me, for cleansing me from all unrighteousness, for seeking me out and giving me such undeserved privilege. Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Protect us from the evil one and all his attacks and tactics. Multiply everything I put my hand to and be glorified. I cast aside all selfish ambition and seek to join into the work You are doing, my Lord and my God!
