Father, reorder my affections; reorder my aspirations.
Reorder what I crave,
Father God, reorder where I find affirmation.
I look in the mirror and desire beauty,
Not the inner kind that lasts,
But I want the physical like it’s my duty.
How I disdain over my appearance
and wonder longingly upon others’
How twisted, how sickening,
Lord, reorder this want that smothers.
I fear man more than You
I cower when I should speak
Open my mouth, reorder my words
May fearless Truth from my lips continuously leak.
Reorder where I find joy
Not in beauty, fame, or boys…
May You be my highest prize and my greatest Treasure
Give me love for You that grows, grows, and GROWS…
exponential growth without measure.
Reorder my idol of self
Replace the idol of me on my giant pedestal with You
You increase, I decrease
in all I think, say, and do.
I’m prideful, I’m selfish, I’m arrogant, I’m unkind
Reorder these characteristics
Take my lustful sinful heart and leave Christ’s behind.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
The old has passed away; but, still in sin I find elation
Father, empower me to put on the new self , Father, reorder it ALL
Dead to sin, alive to righteousness
Daily, God,help me to follow Your call.
Reorder my dreams,
make them align with Your will
Make disciples of all nations
To the ends of the earth, You are with me still.
You are good, You are faithful, You are God and I am not.
Help me to never belittle the Cross
Where reconciliation to You was bought.
Satan and his minions desire to destroy;
To disorder my affections, to take away my Joy
Put on the whole armor of God,
Praying at all times
to extinguish the flaming darts Evil aims.
My prayer is that You will reorder.
Father, jack up my so called life and help me bid my old self adieu
And, may I like the Psalmist proclaim from the rooftops
There is nothing on earth that I desire besides You.
