There is no spiritual growth
Unless we’re honest, Lord.
Prayer is worth nothing
If our words aren’t true.
Facing and sharing
Our shadow self
May we never feign
Our ideal self
Lord, you are searching for honesty (Jeremiah 5:3; NLT).
We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).
God, have mercy on me, a sinner (Luke 18:13; NLT).
You know my thoughts (Psalm 139:2; NLT).
You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence (Matthew 23:25; NIV).
