Praying for Heart Affection

As I was having a conversation about how people develop passion for Glory, I thought about what I heard the other day by John Piper on his prayer life. He uses an acronym for praying that I am using to help my passion for God to increase and my obedience to be a delight to my heart. The acronym is I.O.U.S.

I: Incline my heart to your word.
O: Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things.
U: Unite my heart to fear your name.
S: Satisfy me in the morning with your steadfast love.

I desire to teach people to pray for their heart’s affections, because I don’t think that without right affections, people will joyfully sacrifice in a way that God desires.

you can see the interview about “What If I Don’t Desire God” with John Piper here.
