He will sit like a refiner of silver, burning away the dross (Mal. 3:3).
Father, in Jesus’ name, burn away every dream, desire, attitude, thought, feeling, word and action that is not a result of Your Spirit reigning in my life.
Burn away everything that is more important to me than my revelation of You and my relationship with You.
Burn away everything that hinders me from loving You with all my heart and loving my neighbors as I love myself.
Burn away everything that hinders me from hearing and obeying Your voice.
Burn away everything I believe about who You are and what You are like that is not the Truth.
Burn away everything in my heart and mind that causes me to desire to harm or destroy those who desire or act to harm or destroy me.
Burn away the lust of my eyes, lust of my flesh and pride of life.
Burn away everything that causes me to desire to own or possess anything that is not rightfully mine.
Burn away everything that causes me to desire to lie or exaggerate to get what I want or impress or harm others.
Father, in Jesus’ name, I ask that I will be deeply intimate with You, filled with your Holy Spirit, free of pride, lust, and fear, loving, patient, kind, tenderhearted, forgiving, joyful, thankful, grateful, humble, considerate, healthy, successful, prosperous and very generous. Amen.
