Praying for Brokenness? – with Sidewalk Prophets


Have you ever asked God to make you broken?

It’s not a prayer that normally pops into our heads, but Dave Frey from Sidewalk Prophets knows it’s powerful. He talks about how that idea inspired the song, “Keep Making Me.”

“Make me empty” is important so that we can fill those empty places in our lives with God. I thought about what it means to pray “make me lonely.” I am praying to God to make me so dependent on Him that He becomes my life and I’m not searching for someone else to fill the void in my life.”

– Dave Frey

Dave challenges us to step out and pray scary prayers that let Christ in to every piece of or our lives. The thing is, Dave isn’t just telling us to do these hard things. He really believes it and is striving to lead by example in his own life.

“That’s my prayer. That He’ll keep making me. Even if that takes being broken or lonely, even if I don’t feel like it, I pray that He’ll keep making me into the person that He created me to be.”

– Dave Frey
