Oh Lord, I know that I have resisted Your ways for many years in my life, but I am so sorry. I thought I had it all correct in my own mind, but I was so wrong. Really, I was in darkness and so far gone. I never truly had knowledge that saves but head knowledge only. My thoughts were filled with other teachings outside Your word, the Bible. I pray that I may never become a fool to myself and my own thinking any longer. Teach me of your ways. Open my mind to Your understanding. If I am ever in the wrong, in my way of thinking or the way I live my life, please make mention of it in my heart and mind. Pierce me to the very soul that I may know that I am off base. I never want to leave Your side any longer. You are my God and I trust in You. To have Your chastening is a blessing to my life. I know that only You can lead me to heaven. May my thoughts and desires be always for You. Help me to live my life in Your will. Your ways are better. I am willing to leave anything that is contrary to You. I love You more. Amen.
