The hardest prayer

Sometimes the only thing to pray is, “Lord, break me.”

It is incredibly hard. It grates against our pride and ego and sense of “victorious living”, etc. But this may be the best prayer. And as a result, our lack of willingness to pray it is probably what holds back genuine outpouring of the Spirit.

Too often the temptation is to pray, “Lord, break them.

But, O, Lord, let us begin here. Break me.
