Dear Lord, I know that for some time my life has not been as it should have been. I have been going my own way and not growing in my spiritual life as I know I should. Forgive me, for I know that I have strayed far from the path that I should be following and have become carnal and worldly in so many ways, and Lord, I want to get back to a godly way of living and I know that I can’t do this in my own strength.
How I praise and thank You that You are my Father and I am Your child. I pray that Your Holy Spirit would search me and know me and work deep within my inner being to draw me into a closer and more meaningful fellowship with You, my Father, with each passing day.
May Your Holy Spirit work deep within my heart to refine me and make me more and more like the Lord Jesus Himself, so that I may grow in my spiritual life, so that the loveliness of the Lord Jesus and the beauty of His person may flow into me and be reflected in my life, to His praise and glory.
Take my life I pray, and use it in whatever way You choose, so that I may live a life that is honouring to You, in word and deed as well as action and attitude, to the praise of Your holy name,
