Lord, Please Take My Heart

“My prayer is not that you 
take them out of the world
but that you protect them
from the evil one.”
(Jesus’ prayer to His Father)
John 17:15 NIV
Lord, please take my heart
and nestle it safely
next to Yours -
where trials and heartache
cannot snatch it away,
where Satan’s lies can no longer
confuse and betray.
And even if my heart should break…
still, it will be tenderly
and securely held
in Your loving,
healing hands;
where it can be mended
and strengthened
to love as You do,
once again.
