Prayer of Sorrow

Standard

Father, Creator, Redeemer,

My heart is full.  I overflow with sorrow and gratitude.  You are good.  You are holy.  You are just.  You are love.  You are salvation.  You are provision.  You are beautiful.  You are gracious.  You are compassionate.    You are constant.  You are worthy.

I am sorry.  I am sorry for all the ways I have failed You.  I am sorry for the times I have been a poor reflection of You.  I am sorry for being so selfish.  I am sorry for being discontent.  I am sorry for not giving You enough time.

I am sorry that I have hurt You repeatedly.  I am sorry that I too quickly forget who I am in You.  I am sorry for all the times I ignored Your voice.  I am sorry for being quick to judge and assume.  I am sorry for being to busy for Your Kingdom.

I am sorry for being prideful.  I am sorry for losing my temper.  I am sorry that I have not been patient.  I am sorry that I have tested your patience.  I am sorry for going against Your will.  I am sorry for doing things I know I should not.

I am sorry for breaking my promises to You and to others.  I am sorry that I have not tried harder.  I am sorry for not reaching out to You for assistance.  I am sorry for giving up on You.  I am sorry for giving up on others.    I am sorry that I hurt Your Kingdom. I am sorry I hurt Your Name.

I am sorry for seeking vengeance, when it is Yours.  I am sorry for seeking glory, when it is Yours. I am sorry I thought that what was Yours was mine.  I am sorry for saying things that I should not have.  I am sorry for listening to things that I should not have.

I am sorry for not showing forgiveness.  I am sorry for not seeking Your forgiveness.  I am sorry for only looking from my perspective.  I am sorry for thinking I have to be right.  I am sorry for not being sorry.  I am sorrowful, Lord.

You are good.  You are constant.  You never give up.  You, steadfast You, search my heart and seek to change it.  You do not need me, yet You desire me.   I am grateful.  Grateful for Your forgiveness.  Grateful for Your provision.  Grateful for Your mercy.  Grateful for Your grace.  Grateful for You.

I am Yours, Lord.  Please accept my apology and change me.  I surrender to You.

With Love and Adoration,

Me
