"But seek first his
kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be
given to you as well." (Matt 6:33)
I have been foolish!
I have been distracted by false gods.
Family, friends, materialism, and a million other
things have beckoned me to turn away from You. I have been
shaken and unsettled by my worldly problems.
I have glanced away from your loving eyes.
I have inched away from your presence.
I have let our relationship wax and wane.
Heavenly Father, grant me the courage and wisdom to
put you first in my life--above all else.
You are one God...King of Kings...and Lord of Lords.
You demand my full attention, my life, my all.
As I bow before You, I humbly confess that I do not
know You as well as I should.
Although you have revealed yourself in the
scriptures, I have not always taken time to study your word.
Although You have always been close-by, I have not
always taken time to talk to You, and listen to You.
For this I am truly sorry.
Precious God, my heart longs to be closer to You.
I want to sit at
your feet, and walk in your shadow.
I yearn to be "plugged in" to your Holy Spirit at all
times, and in all ways.
I need your perfect friendship and love.
I need your perfect wisdom and advice.
Lord God, be behind my every thought and in front of
my every action.
Keep me always in an attitude of prayer.
And when I stray and lose my way, be a compass for me
in this troubled world.
Help me to turn my life around and stay focused on
the only thing that really counts--my relationship with you.
With your help, I will find new direction and purpose
in my life. I
will follow the narrow path that leads to You. I will focus
on new horizons.
And when at last I reach my journey's end, I will see
You face to face.
Amen and amen.
