Dear Heavenly Father,
I wish to spend more time with You daily. Maybe I should set up a time to do so. However, I don't wish to just make time. I just want to spend time, but I have allowed myself to be distracted. I thank You for all of Your understanding. However, I am truly sorry for my disrespect. I have come to realize quite a few things about me. I have gotten lazy in my reading and studying Your word. Forgive me, Father. I have thought about what will happen in the future where all of us will be judged. Help me to keep that in mind. I will like all of us have to give an account for how I have lived my life and I hope to get a good account.
I ask You for wisdom in this area that I may be wise and use whatever knowledge You have so given me. I also ask for Your guidance as I am in need of a sense of direction in my life. I feel like I am lost in this world and that it has passed me by. I fail at most everything I have tried to accomplish. I also ask for open doors and a sense of understanding. I need a sense of purpose. I do wonder what Your will is for my life. I also wonder what why is it I am here. You know who I am better than I know myself. I ask that You would reveal that to me. Show me who I am and what I need to do. I ask for the wisdom and the words of the Holy Spirit and I will listen and obey. All I know that You are looking for obedience from Your people and I admit that I haven't always obeyed You and for that I am sorry.
I need help in repenting of my sins. There are sins that I give into and I am not a strong person. I realize that I need Your strength and I ask for Your strength. I need that daily and I ask You for an increase in faith. Help me with any unbelief that I have in my life and erase all doubts that I may have. I ask that You would cleanse me from all secret faults. Set a watch before my mouth and may I find grace and favor in Your sight, if I deserve it.
I do not ask for money at this time though I am in need. I do not ask for guidance in material things though I am in need. I do not ask for long life even though I do not wish to die young. I also do not ask for other things that are of this world even though I am in need. What I need most of all is an answer from You. I am and will be like Solomon in this manner, for I ask for wisdom that I may live for You and serve You all the days of my life. I wish to dwell in the house of the Lord, forever.
In Jesus' name,
