Praying from Matthew 15:8. Themes: Hypocrisy, Worship, Heart

Dear God, please help me to not just speak empty words of praise and worship to you, but to truly draw near to you with my heart. May my actions and thoughts align with my words, and may my love for you be genuine and sincere. Please keep my heart close to you always, and help me to honor you in all that I do. Amen.
