Searching God In The Purity Of The Heart - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Lord, deliver me
from fantasies of grandeur
that seek to elevate myself
as the center of my existence,
that cut off the chords
between you and me
that see myself
as the sole shining star
in your whole universe.

Let me see you
with my pure heart,
pure mind and tongue.
Let me seek to keep you
the center of praise and worship.
