Come into my life, O Lord,
and fill my thoughts with heavenly things,
that You may become my master
filling me with goodness that I at times lack.
Fill me with peace that never leaves
my heart that easily filled with rage.
Pour joy into my life, joy that sustains me
in a world trying to steal it away,
And let me share the kindness
You have given to me with others.
And what I need help with most of all is self-control.
The life I've lived leads to death.
It took me to death's door,
but You bestowed a blessing upon me,
one I don't want to throw away
for to do so
would be to deny your compassion and mercy.
Now transform me, Father,
into a new person by changing the way I think,
that I may know what You want me to do,
and where You would like me to go.
Bring your purpose planned long ago to pass.
I realize I've sinned by letting my anger gain control over me.
It is laid out for all see,
and worse yet,
I may have caused others to stumble because of it.
I was seeking something good with the wrong approach,
I set myself aside away from everyone else.
My love needs renewal
for certain aspects of it have fallen away,
and it's only Your forgiveness, Father,
through Christ Jesus which can reconcile me.
Hear me, O Lord,
As I tear not my clothes,
but only my heart,
may this truth set me free from the chains of bitterness.
I ask this in Jesus' name,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.
