Father, Break Through Stony Hearts

This entry is part 26 of 30 in the series Praying For The Prodigal

Father, knowing that prodigal children can have hearts of stone, please place Your Spirit within them and change their hearts to be soft and alive with Your holy presence (Ezekiel 36:26).

It is the great redemptive promise of the new covenant: a new heart.  In Ezekiel’s day, things had gone from bad to worse.  God had to make the prophet as stubborn as the people he was ministering to.  (See Ezekiel 3:7-9).

If you find yourself despairing over hardened hearts, take courage.  For God has promised that in his work of redemption he will turn stone hard hearts to hearts of tender flesh again.

Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” (Ezekiel 36:26, NASB95PARA)
