Prayer

Failure

Failure 

‘O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner’ (Luke 18:13; NLT).

“Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you” (Luke 15:18-19; NLT).

Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere (Ephesians 6:18; NLT).

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NLT).

 

Father,
Be merciful to me,
For I am a sinner
Who fails you every day.

I forget to stay alert,
And to be aware
Of your presence.

I fail to follow Christ’s example,
And to see you
In others.

I neglect to pray in the Spirit,
And to be thankful
In all circumstances.

Please forgive me,
And help me to do better,
For the sake of your dear Son.

Amen.
