Dear Lord Jesus, I want to begin by confessing that I have made a lot of mistakes—some very recently. What’s more, I am seldom the person I truly want to be—and when I am out of sorts, my loved ones take the brunt of it. I battle often with “a wrong spirit” that seems to reign in me and run my life.
I believe You are able to clean up my heart. I believe You can take away “the wrong spirit” and “renew a right spirit within me.”
I am asking You now, Lord, to do what You have promised to do. For the specific ways I have sinned, please forgive me and cleanse me. Above all, Lord, please renew a right spirit in me, so that I can serve You, represent Your love properly, and bring joy and blessing to those around me. Amen.
