Here I am 

Here I Am
written by Anna Murdock

Here I am, such as I am …
Imperfect.
Weak.
Broken.
In need of forgiveness.
In need of your Presence.

Here I am, such as I am …
Confessing.
Repentant.
Hopeful.
Listening.

Here I am, such as I am …
Willing to be melted
and molded.
Wanting a newly-created
pure heart.

Here I am, such as I am …
Branded with a mark –
Your unmistakable mark.

Lead me, O God …
walk with me
in these 40 days.
Amen.
