Archive for the ‘Repentance’ Category

I have sinned against You, Lord. I have not read my Bible, I do not go to Church, I lay down to sleep rarely ever remembering to pray and give thanks for another day of life, and I have allowed the flame in my heart almost go out.

Oh my Lord, I repent of these sins. Please Lord, take me by the hand and lead me back to You. I heard myself thinking about how ‘I will’ fix this, and I heard and knew that I was the one who ‘willed’ me into this shameful place. I do not believe I can do this by my will. I need You, oh Lord. Please hear my plea.

I have become so busy there is no room or time for You. I always believed You would never leave me. If I were to read in Revelations about the Church of Ephasus, You told them to remember their first love. This is in the beginning of the second chapter. I know this because it is a chapter I keep having to come to everytime. Why?!?

What is wrong with me, Lord? I know that I am human, but why is it always the same sin? It is as if I do not love You, but I do. I want to. What is wrong with me?

Whatever the problem may be, I turn my life over to You once more. I should do this everyday, but I have been forgetting to do this too.

Remember one of my favorite songs, Lord? Did you think to pray! I will write it so I can see it everytime I look here.

Refrain:Oh, how praying rests the weary! Prayer will change the night to day; So, when life seems dark and dreary, Don’t forget to pray.

1. Ere you left your room this morning, Did you think to pray? In the name of Christ, our Saviour, Did you sue for loving favor, as a shield today?

2. When you met with great temptation, Did you think to pray? By His dying love and merit Did you claim the Holy Spirit As your Guide and Stay?

3. When your heart was filled with anger, Did you think to pray? Did you plead for grace, my brother, That you might forgive another Who had crossed your way?

4. When soar trials came upon you, Did you think to pray? When your soul was bowed in sorrow, Balm of Gilead did you borrow At the gates today?

I feel better already. I am very sorry, Lord. I don’t write here everyday as I should. I feel so all alone. I have no one to pray with, I can’t get out of this apartment, and I have asked for Bible study partners. People have their own lives to live, and I don’t hold that against them. I guess it will be You and me for a while, eh? I just don’t want to get it wrong. That is what scares me the most.

When I left that cult, it threw me for a bigger loop than I realized. I want to know what was originally said, not what man says it said. I never want to be brainwashed again. Yes, that is my fear. I don’t even trust myself…Have a nice day.

In Jesus’ precious name I pray, Amen.
