(Thomas Reade, “On the Blessedness of a New Heart”)
“Divine Redeemer, out of whose inexhaustible fullness I daily draw a rich supply of grace to my needy soul, be pleased to impart to me an undivided heart,
that to please You may be my greatest happiness,
and to promote Your glory my highest honor.
Preserve me . . .
from false motives,
from a double mind,
and a divided heart.
Keep me entirely to Yourself, and enable me to crucify every lust which would tempt my heart from You.
Enable me by Your grace to walk in one uniform path of holy, childlike obedience.
When tempted to turn aside to the right hand or the left, may I keep steadily Your way–until when brought before Your throne, I see Your face, behold Your smile, and fall in ecstasy at Your feet, lost in wonder, love, and praise!”
Impart to me an undivided heart!

(J.R. Miller, “Help for the Day”)
“He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds!” Psalm 147:3
The God of the Bible, is the God of the broken-hearted.
God cares. The broken-heartedness of His people attracts Him. The lament of grief on earth, draws Him down from Heaven!
“The LORD is near to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18
“He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted” Luke 4:18
