“Lord, thank you for coming to save me from my sin. Thank you for creating and redeeming me, for giving me the gift of faith, and for drawing me closer to you every day. All the good that I have received is your gift, Lord. Why do I still fret and fear? Why do I doubt your love? Forgive my fearful heart, my selfish tantrums. With the Kingdom of your heart, reign in my heart.

I am short on both humility and confidence. I believe, but my faith is weak. I know that without you I can do nothing, but I spend most of my time acting like I can do it all on my own. Have mercy on me, Lord. Teach me the great lesson of humility. Grant me the peace of soul that comes from living in the palm of your hand.
I am amazed at the depth and delicacy of your love. Teach me to love as you love. It is beyond my power. Teach me to reach out to my neighbor, to recognize their needs, to care about them. Tear away the blinders of selfishness that hinder me from building your Kingdom. With the love of your heart, inflame my heart!”
