Lord, I am so grateful that You have taken me from a life of sin. For so many years I was consumed with the lusts of the flesh. I could never get enough of the pleasures of this world. But in all this, guilt and shame continued to haunt me. Because of it, I never thought I’d ever measure up to You. I’d say, how could God forgive a sinner like me. For this reason, I’d continue to fall into sin and have no way out. It wasn’t until I fell down on my knees and asked for Your deliverance, oh God, that things changed. The day that my heart was broken and I came to You in heartfelt prayer, I could feel Your mercy. You heard all my confessions and longings for a life change. You saw that I was incapable of doing this and helped me through it all. I was weak but You made me strong. Because Your blood came over me, I was made new. My desires changed. I began to seek Your love and do as You say. And Lord, You have been working on me since. Thank You for never giving up on me, though I have slipped and fell on the way. I know that I am stronger with You in my life. I can do all things with You by my side. I trust in You Lord. Thank You for Your mercy. May others also call upon Your Name in prayer for mercy. I love You. Amen.
