A Psalm for the spiritually poor

Rain for a dry land

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3

How do I make worship of You fresh and meaningful?
How do I make my praise filled with vibrance and zest?
How do I make prayer life changing?
How do I make Your word jump off the page?
I can’t do this.

I come and fall before You in humility for my barren spirit.
You have said a broken and contrite heart you will not turn away.
Lord, let Your Spirit move and transform me.
Even if it is the thousandth time.
You can do this.
I know You want to do this.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me.

You hem me in—behind and before; You have laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me. Psalm 139:6
