Daily Prayer of Cleansing

This is the daily prayer of cleansing I use at the Prayer Altar:

Lord prepare me to be a living sanctuary for You. My body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit, so I offer it as a living sacrifice. I lay down all I am and have and ever will be at the foot of Your cross. I consecrate body soul and spirit to You and covenant my ears, eyes, mouth, heart, hands and feet to You.

Forgive me that my ears have been hearing the wrong voices. Cover my ears with Your blood to be circumcised and pierced to hear your voice only. Forgive me for having wandering eyes, lusting after the wrong things. Take every plank out of my eyes and forgive me for judging others hypocritically. Cover my eyes with your blood to see You and fix my eyes on Your visions alone. Forgive me for speaking wrong things. Cover my lips with your blood so no corrupt word comes forth but only that which is necessary for edification.

Give me a pure heart. Forgive me that my mind is full of wrong thoughts, give me the mind of Christ. Forgive me for a stubborn and rebellious will. Align me with the Father’s will. Forgive me for emotions controlled by the flesh. Holy Spirit come and control my emotions and release Your love, joy, peace, kindness, longsuffering, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control in me.

Cover my hands with your blood. Give me clean hands to heal and not hurt, build and not destroy, give and not take, embrace and not push away, serve and not be served. Cover my feet with your blood. Wash them from the filthiness of this world and put Your gospel shoes on them. Forgive me for walking in wrong ways and help me have a walk worthy of Your calling so that wherever the soul of my foot treads I can claim it for Your Kingdom.
