Pride, bitterness, self- preservation has invaded my soul

You’ve allowed sin to enter in causing great & terrible pain

O LORD, transform this old, selfish heart of mine
Change my heart to a selfless one only of YOUR kind
Change my blind heart forever so YOUR ways I may see
So when persecution comes, a beacon of light to others I may be
