Not What I Deserve

Father in Heaven;

I pray to You and ask for forgiveness. Not that I deserve it, You know I have been at this place thousands of times before. I ask for Your mercy out of my desire to serve You and to be an example of Your love and Holiness to the world. I don't want my actions to bring shame and dishonor to Your Holy Name.

Father purify my heart. Give me the strenth to resist the temptation which war against this new heart you have put in me. Lord give me the hatred I need to hate the sin which constantly entangles me and keeps me from being the man you want me to be.

Lord, I thank You for Jesus. Only in Him do I have hope that my sins will be taken way and the chance to have a relationship with You. It is in Jesus' name I pray, amen.
