Oh Lord, thank You for coming into my life. I would be so lost with You. For many years I needed a Savior, but never realized it. I thought I had it all together while doing my own things, of which I thought was right. I followed a set of beliefs that I thought were for You. I lived up to my church’s standards, which I thought were Your standards. The laws and ordinances in this church were so difficult to achieve. And so I began to secretly sin against who I thought was you when in reality it was the church’s man-made laws. Unfortunately, in these dark times, I had no way of overcoming real temptation and so I sinned greatly in Your sight. Sexual sin almost ruined my life and my marriage until I realized something. I needed to first leave all my false beliefs behind and then I could begin to learn and be conformed to You. I was no longer the person in charge but gave way to You, my Lord and King to do whatever you please in my life. This has been a long journey these last ten years, but it has been worth it. You have come and opened my eyes to the evils of this world and now I hate even the appearance of sin. Thank You for forgiving me, God. I love You, Lord. I live for You now. Amen.
Psalm 13:4-6 (KJV)
4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5 But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6 I will sing unto the Lord, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
It is good to pray often. Sometimes it is for mercy, and other times it may be for guidance, patience, peace, wisdom, and more.
