Psalm 1329
You know, Father, I'm not interested in making a name for myself..anymore.
I want and desire to be an example of a person who truly believes in Christ.
Who does live with a clean conscious, loves from a pure heart, and shows genuine faith.
I've not been that person.
It's taken a long time for me to reach this point in life
where I can take an honest look at myself and see where I've gone wrong.
And the actually put forth the effort to do something about it.
I'm speaking out about it.
And I'm no longer afraid to speak about my love for You.
My recognition and sharing my mistakes, I pray is a reflection of the live I have for You.
Not just speaking about my mistakes, but allowing You to change me from the inside out.
I'll tell you why its taken me so long,
I fell so far away from You by living by this world standards.
Trying to fit in to the status quo.
Trying to be a part of the 'in' crowd.
In doing so, I've spoken if things that are contrary to Your truth.
Its so easy for the words to just come out.
If it is Your will, I ask that Your Word be a constant source of truth that I seek to find each day.
And that I not forget but remember the mistakes I've made and work daily to grow in You.
I recognize that some if my words have promoted divisive controversies
instead of helping people turn to You, Father, Lord Jesus.
If it is Your will, I ask that this recognition be a constant reminder of who I've been in the past
and who I no longer wish to be.
I have spent time previously on meaningless conversations, and wasn't even concerned about three personal evidence of You in my life.
And I admit again, that I was trying to make a name for myself.
I gave into the ways of the world
by pushing back when I was pushed.
I lived by the motto:
Treat others as they treat you and not what Your Word teaches me:
Treat others as you would have them treat you.
This world taught me to be independent and not dependent upon You.
Now, I'm doing my best to be obedient by listening to the inner tugs of the Spirit
and saying all that I am saying now.
I was living according to my will and not Yours.
Forgive me, Father, for I see where I've gone wrong.
With each word, an overwhelming freedom is setting in!
If it is Your will, I ask that the people of this nation hear and understand that life is at a pivitol moment in time.
We are about to have this religious freedom taken from us for this nation has fallen far away from You, O Lord.
And I pray that those who haven't been baptized, please hurry and do so.
I'm doing my best to be an example if what You're looking for
and I pray wholeheartedly that You hear me, Father.
I ask this in Jesus' name,
Amen.
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come
