You Alone: a prayer of dedication

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure. (Psalm 16:5)

You alone.
Lord, it is You alone.
Although I sometimes
turn toward others sources
of strength or joy,
it is You alone
who is my portion and my cup.

My sustenance is in You.
My provision is in You.
My security is in You.
My joy is in You.
Lord, my God,
my King and my Savior,
it is You alone.

Purify my heart
from all idols and false loves.
Clear out all the wrong desires
and twisted pursuits.
Bring me back to my first love,
my one holy desire and passion,
my solitary pursuit of You—
You alone.
