1 Samuel 17:38-45 and Thomas Merton’s “False Self” concept in New Seeds of Contemplation:

As humans we tend to construct false versions of ourselves to hide from prayer and discomfort.

May this lenten prayer of surrender to God’s knowledge of who we are help us to submit to His work of forming us into Christ.

Layers is the first in a series of brand new meditative worship songs called Morning Prayer.

Strip back the layers of my heart
And have your way with me oh Spirit of God
I’m tired of being who I’m not
I’ve had enough of being no one at all

When I feel most weak
Then at last I’m strong

All I want
All I need
Life of God
Live in me

I’ve covered up my empty heart
Instead of laying down and opening up
I’ve calloused over and turned hard
To you the tender one whose will is your love

When I feel most weak
Then at last I’m strong

All I want
All I need
Life of God
Live in me

All I want
All I need
Life of God
Live in me

I WANT TO BE YOUR BROTHER.
