RE9, Term 3, Week 6: Prayers and reflections
Heavenly Father, there are no words to express how bad I feel every time I break your heart. I don't like feeling guilty and ashamed. Lord, I need Your touch right now. Like Paul, I am in conflict with myself. “For I do not do what I want, but do the very thing that I hate.” (Romans 7:15) I am so sorry! Father, I ask for Your forgiveness right now. Without forgiveness I am nothing. With Your forgiveness I am whole again. I praise Your Name! Amen.
For Some Help
Please give us, Father-God,
a clean start for beginners,
intelligence to the young,
aid to those who are running hard,
repentance to those who fall,
a revived spirit to those who are lukewarm,
and to those who have given their best
a good ending.
St Irenaeus of Lyon (d. AD 202)
