Lord Jesus, come interfere with my life.

Lord Jesus, come interfere with my life.
Take the places I don't want you to touch and completely renovate them...significantly.
Don't leave one area untouched, uncombed.
Tear down the walls of my pride & arrogance. Strip me of my self-confidence.
Interfere with the very depths of who I think I am.

Lord Jesus, come interfere with my life.
Rebuild me according to Your Word, according to Your promises.
Take the mere fan that I am and transform me.
Interfere with the innermost parts of me--those things hidden, dark and desperate.
Take all of me...every facet, every weakness, every strength, and turn me upside-down.
Shake me.

Lord Jesus, come interfere with my life.
You already know me...every single thing about me.
You know my yesterdays, hold my today, and own my tomorrows.
Only You know the deepest parts of who I am....levels that no human could possibly reach.
Come, interfere with my life.

Lord Jesus, come interfere with my life.
Yes, I ask & believe in boldness that You will come.
Wash over me like a flood, a mighty river dragging me into its current.
Don't let me escape. Don't let me conform to who I think I should be.
Interfere with my plans, my agenda.
Move me.

Lord Jesus, come interfere with my life.
Stretch the road out before me.
When I can't see my next step, let me feel your presence completely invading the walls around my heart.
Give me ears to hear and eyes to see.

Lord Jesus, come interfere with my life.
Amen.

Hey! Thank you for your kind words! Right now my church is going through the study, Not a Fan. In our journals, one of the challenges was to ask "Lord Jesus, come interfere with my life" and then see what came from that. The words just spilled out from there! :)
