Heavenly Father, I thank You that You sought me out and saved me by the mighty power of the blood of Jesus. Lord God, I have spent so many years pleasing myself and not paying attention to Your call on my life, and I realise that I have wasted so much precious time.
Forgive me I pray, for the selfish and rebellious way I realise I have been living, and I pray that in Your grace and mercy, You would allow me to redeem the time that I have wasted. Lord, I know that I can never relive the time that has gone, but I pray that You would give me the opportunity to live my life as I should have lived, to live the rest of my life as Your bond-servant, to submit to Your leading and guiding, to focus the eyes of my heart on the Lord Jesus, and to be led by Your Spirit to do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight.
Help me to use the time I have left wisely. May I not grow weary of well-doing, but rather may I run the race of life as Paul did, to win the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Take my life and let it be separated and consecrated for You alone. In Jesus' name,
