Lord, may this prayer be to you like the smell of cookies baking in the oven.
As I knock on your door I hope you’ll answer as if a postman just arrived with an unexpected package.
Because what I want more than anything is for you to change my heart.
I’m not hungry for superficial change. I need what only you can give. I need a change of heart.
Help me so that I not only do not act on my evil desires–help me not to even have evil desires.
May I not only not do what’s wrong–may I not even desire what’s wrong.
Change my heart, O Lord.
