O God, be gracious to me and bless me and make the light of Your face shine on me and draw me back into Your loving arms. Lord, I have wandered far from You, and have been chasing after the things that are of little importance. In so doing I have left my First Love. I have wandered far from You Lord Jesus, I want to return into Your loving arms.
I have been remembering the beautiful fellowship we enjoyed together when I first was born again, and am coming to You Lord now, to confess my neglect, to admit my fault in wandering far from You, in order to experience a few paltry pleasures of the world. But they have left a bitter taste in my mouth and I long to rest in Your love once again, to breathe in the refreshing air of Your grace and to return into the loving arms of Jesus.
So be gracious to me Lord, and may the light of Your face shine on me once more. In Your grace, I come to You in humbleness of heart and pray that we may return into the sweet fellowship we once enjoyed. Thank You, Lord, that you are a God Whose greatest desire is to reconcile sinners back into Your loving arms. In Jesus' name,
