He restores (brings back home, retrieves, turns back, refreshes, rescues, relieves, returns, repairs)
my soul (my self, inner person, my identity, who I really am, my life, mind, living being, desires, emotions, passions, that which breathes within me) Psalm 23:3a
Oh Lord, restore our souls. Bring us back home. Turn us back. Retrieve us from the hand of the enemy. Rescue us!
Repair our souls, we pray. Our broken identities. Our fractured thinking. Our mangled emotions, desires, passions. Breathe your breath into us again. Refresh, revive, resuscitate us!
Give us the mind of Christ.
Give us a heart to know you.
Give us a soul – a passionate desire – to love our brothers, our sisters, our neighbors.
