My Heart & Soul, Mind & Strength.
Purify our hearts, God.
May this ever be our prayer!
Matthew 5:8 — Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Psalm 24:3-6 — Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in His holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
Psalm 51:10 — Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer.

Treasure in Earthen Vessels
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” 2 Corinthians 4:17

In All Generations…
”[A Prayer of Moses the man of God.] Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” -Psalms 90:1-2
From everlasting to everlasting, He is GOD! That God is the One who loves you, has been there for you already, wants to save you, and cares about the details of your life. Now, tell me again why you were worried, stressed, afraid, anxious, overwhelmed about that (whatever that is)? HE IS GOD!
Love, therefore, is the basis of consecration.

Jehovah Mekoddishkem in the Septuagint: kurios ho hagiazôn humas…the Lord that sanctifies you
Meaning and Derivation: Jehovah is translated as “The Existing One” or “Lord.” The chief meaning of Jehovah is derived from the Hebrew word Havah meaning “to be” or “to exist.” It also suggests “to become” or specifically “to become known”…this denotes a God who reveals Himself unceasingly. Mekoddishkem derives from the Hebrew word qâdash meaning “sanctify,” “holy,” or “dedicate.” Sanctification is the separation of an object or person to the dedication of the Holy. When the two words are combined…Jehovah Mekoddishkem…it can be translated as “The Lord who sets you apart.”
Further references of the name Jehovah Mekoddishkem in the Old Testament: Exd 31:13; Lev 20:8
