Open My Eyes Lord, I Want to See Jesus

Lord, You promise to draw near to the brokenhearted and those crushed in spirit. By faith, I know this to be true. But lately, I can’t see You because of my tears. Open my eyes Lord.

open my eyes Lord

You are my faithful God, merciful and kind. I have no reason to doubt Your promises, but my circumstances are consuming me. My attention is focused there, like I’m in a headlock of the enemy and I can’t lift my head to behold Your glory.

Help me, Lord. Set me free from these chains that bind. Create a clean heart in me, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.

Open my eyes Lord.

When I recognize Your presence, peace returns, the giants in my land grow small. I know I can conquer them because I remember that You are my strength.

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Nothing is too difficult for You, God.

Hide me beneath the shadow of Your wing until these calamites pass me by. Lift high Your shield, for You are my Defender. You are my Lion of Judah — wow! What a glorious thought, Lord.

I Love You, Lord

You open my eyes to see You, Lord, to recognize Your presence in my difficult place. Thank You. I will praise You for as long as I have breath, for You alone are worthy of all praise. I love You, Lord. Thank You for being You.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen ~ let it be so
