Heavenly Father, I am lost, and I can’t find my way back home. I have wondered off the path of righteousness. I have fallen, struggling to get back up. And as a consequence, sin is crouching at my door. Causing the devil to demand for my soul. It feels like he’s eating me alive. I am weakness, full of weakness. I have no more strength left. I am fearful, constantly tormented. Life to me doesn’t make sense anymore because of what I am going through.
As I stand, I stand naked before you. You see my secret sins. You see the evil of my heart. You see my confusion. You see my hypocrisy. You know my desperation. And you know how much I am in need of you. I can’t hide from you. I have it in me to do whatever I want to do, but I know this is wrong.
I am at my lowest. I honestly, don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do with my life. I can’t do good on my own. By myself all I do is bad. I am empty and tired. I can’t even be happy let alone enjoy a good moment anymore. Therefore, I see that I am nothing without you.
Please help me to find my way back home to you. Lead me back unto the path of righteousness. Help me to stand up again, and to never fall back down. Work your will in me. Work your will in me to do good according to your word. For I can’t do it. You’re going to have to do it in and through me. Heal my backsliding ways. Give me a clean heart, and renew in me a right spirit. Give me new thoughts, desires and impulses. Give me a spirit of righteousness. Where sin and every evil way is hated and disgusted. Cast out my fear which brings torment by your perfect love. I pray in your son’s name, in Jesus Christ name. Amen.
