Heavenly Father, my life is weak and seems to be failing and falling apart and in my heart I know that this is due to a long-term neglect of You and Your ways. Forgive me I pray, and help me to return into true fellowship with You once again.
Lord, I believe that You have stirred in my spirit the need to turn from my worldly ways and to look again to Christ. I believe that You have quickened my spirit to call my heart back to You. Lord, I know that Your Word tells us that Godly sorrow brings repentance and I know that I have strayed far from You, and Lord I truly repent in my heart. I truly desire to turn away from the ways that have entrapped me for so long and to return to You. Thank You that even though I have been faithless, You have remained faithful.
Bring me I pray, to the foot of the cross. I need to hand over the reigns of my life to You. Too long I have tried to do things my way and I realise that only in You is true peace found. But Lord, I know I am weak and do not want to wander away from You again, and so I ask that You would draw me daily, and place in my heart a fervent desire for You, a desire to be in Your Word and a desire to meet with You in prayerful communion. Lord, I confess that without You I can do nothing. Bring me I pray, to such spiritual brokenness that I will never again stray from Your loving arms. In Jesus' name I pray,
