A Psalm of Confession based on Fruit of the Spirit
Lord, hear my confession.
My enemies pursue and I do not flee to you.
Instead I let their attacks rob me of who you are.
Indifference rules my life instead of love.
May I love according to your steadfast love.
Negative thinking replaces my joy.
May I think of your delights.
Anxiety overtakes my trust in you.
Restore my peace in you.
Impatience leads to frustration.
May I rest in your timing.
Sarcasm has replaced my words of kindness.
Remind me that you were silent when wrongly accused.
Brokenness of others distracts me from goodness.
Guide me in your goodness.
My confidence is shaken.
I want to live according to your faithfulness.
Strife has led me to isolate myself.
May I walk in your gentleness being gentle with others and myself.
I choose to waste time.
Train me in self control.
I submit to you.
I have been broken by those who pursue me unjustly.
Cleanse me of my sin.
Heal me of my brokenness.
Grow fruit in my life for I want to be like you.
