Heavenly Father, forgive me for the time I have spent far away from You, and become preoccupied with in my own wants, needs and necessities. Forgive me for the times that I have only sought You out, when I have had a problem or discovered a need.
Thank You, Father, for being faithful and always listening to my prayers, even on those occasions when I know I was not being faithful to You.
Thank You, Father, that You remain faithful to Your Word and to Your children, for which I praise and worship you. Renew my spirit within me I pray. Revitalize my trust and faith in You, so that I may serve You as You deserve, in humility of heart and willing obedience. May the living waters of life revive my dry and dusty soul, and plant me again I pray, beside Your still waters and the refreshing fountain.
Rekindle within a spark of wonder of Who You are and light up a flame of love in my heart that has become dim and flickering, because You are my God, Who has redeemed my life from the pit and set my feet on the rock of my salvation. Rescue me I pray, from the parched wilderness and dryness of spirit, into which I have wandered and lead me along the path that You would have me to go.
Awaken within me that spiritual fervor that only comes from You so that may I live from this day forward preoccupied with things that delight Your heart and will forward Your plans and purposes in my life and the lives of those around me. I ask this in Jesus' name, Amen
