Lord please forgive me for the many times I have tried to do things in my own strength. All of the times I have tried to be self-sufficient, thinking that I don’t need any one in my life, that I can handle things all by myself.
Lord I admit that I am weak and I need you in my life. I admit that you are in control of everything and nothing happens in my life that you don’t know about. That you allow painful and stressful situations in my life to teach me and to mold me into the person you want me to be.
Through each trial you are building God-like character in me. Lord help me learn the first time so that I don’t keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again. Help me to show compassion when compassion is needed.
Teach me not to follow my emotions but to follow your Spirit. Teach me the fine line to define and discern the difference. Don’t let me get tangled up in my own selfish desires that hinder me from hearing your voice.
Your word tells me that the Holy Spirit will teach me and lead me into all the truth for your Spirit is truth. Your Holy Spirit also shows me things that are to come.
Prepare my path and show me the way that you want me to walk. Comfort me when I make mistakes, and pick me up and set my on the straight path. Clear away cobwebs and confusion from my past so that I can hear your voice more clearly.
