Today’s Prayer (12/16/2019)

Oh Lord, I love You and honor You above all things. My delight is in You. People can take anything that I have in my life and I will still be happy, for my joy comes from You alone. Nothing this world has to offer me can ever compete with the blessings that You bestow upon me each day. Oh, how I love Your ways. I am so grateful to have left my old life behind, in order to experience what true happiness is like now. In the past, I was lukewarm and my deeds were wicked. My treasures were on earth and they brought me joy in the moment. And since my joy never continued, I was left wanting more and more of the self-same gratification in the flesh. I also needed the newest and greatest technological devices to be happy. And so my thoughts were corrupted with the lusts of my flesh, while also looking at pornography. I was so wretched and guilt-ridden for so many years. And although You know my life, not everyone else knows how I was delivered from such things. So I am honored to tell people that I have been set free by confessing my sins in prayer and giving my life to You, Lord. You heard my cries and wiped away my tears. I didn’t want to live another day where I was addicted to things that I know You hated. So I asked that You would remove the filth from my life and forgive me. This is when You did the most unexpected thing ever. Your hand came upon me and brought peace to my soul. At that moment I was cleansed from all my sins through Your blood. I may have been unworthy to be in Your presence before, but all that wickedness was swept away. And in doing this, You have put in me a clean heart. Thank You, Lord. I am made new because of Your mercy and grace. I love You so much. Amen.
