Forgive me for my spiritual laziness and irresponsibility.
Expose my warped explanations
and excuses for sin and shallowness.
Weed out my sinful thoughts and actions.
Break the sinful patterns that too often entangle me
and keep me from ministering as I should.
Thank you for your kingdom, your grace, your coming to rescue your creation.
Fill me with your grace and love,
and make me a vessel through which new creation can flow out to others.
Flood the desert of my parched heart with your living water,
and may you overflow my cup so that I will be a blessing to others.
Set me apart for your purposes.
Make me into a treasured instrument for the benefit of your kingdom.
