Merciful Repentance

Lord,

I thank you for the grace to repent,

your merciful spirit that is so sweet.

Forgive me for my unbelief,

clenching my trinkets and baubles,

unwilling to let go

to trust in your provision,

and not seeing your generous hand.

Cleanse my heart with your Word,

and grant me a spirit of obedience

of undivided love and attention for you.

Let your will be the only remaining,

abiding joy and delight of my life.

Don’t let me walk down the path of destruction,

straight to hell

with my self deception, excuses, and rationalizations,

but give me the grace,

again and again,

to draw near to you,

and repent,

trusting in your unfailing mercy,

your power to restore.

Thank you for never letting me go,

your long suffering and patience,

never giving up in pursuing me

for my good and for your glory.

I bless you Lord.

Caroline
