Prayerful Thoughts: With All My Heart

11 Teach me your ways, O Lord,
    that I may live according to your truth!
Grant me purity of heart,
    so that I may honor you.
12 With all my heart I will praise you, O Lord my God.
    I will give glory to your name forever,
13 for your love for me is very great.
    You have rescued me from the depths of death. (Psalm 86:11-13)

WP heart divided by nothing

I love finding something cool and unexpected when I’m looking for something else.

The scripture I quoted above is one of my favorites…and an often prayed prayer. I know the disastrous consequences of a divided heart.

So in my search I came across the pic above. I didn’t get it at first. I never was very good with fractions. (Picture me laughing at myself here.)

Heart divided by nothing.

I love it. I would almost tattoo that one! (Don’t tell my daughters.) Why? Because that is the prayer of my heart.

And the really good news is found in Ezekiel 19:11: And I will give them singleness of heart (aka: undivided) and put a new spirit within them. I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart. (NLT)

And with a heart like that, we can live ever, only, all for Him.

WP ever only all for thee

  1. Heart divided by nothing – I love it! I had to stare at it for a couple seconds before I saw it. Don’t feel bad, evidently this engineer isn’t too good at fractions either. 🙂


  2. This has been my prayer this very morning. Only desiring His praise, His approval His companionship. That is a life surrendered only to Him. That is a life without limitations. Take my heart O Lord and make it Thine. It cannot be my own. To you I owe my all!
    I love you, Tina!
