My heart and mind might be wrong

Oh, Lord, 

Examine my heart and mind

because they might be wrong.

In fact, I know they are.

I'm wrong.

I confess it.

My thoughts are angry, unkind, ungraceful.

My words reflect my thoughts, 

and I'm ashamed of them.

Bring every wrong thought captive--

reveal my selfish motives for why I think and say what I do.

Show me the truth.

I need your perspective, not my own.

Examine my heart and mind and humble me enough to admit what's lurking there.

Lord, I confess it again.

I'm wrong

Fill me with grace, forgiveness, and understanding.

I want to continually walk in your truth,

in your way,

in your timing.

I praise you for your faithfulness to me, even when I'm not faithful back.

Thank you, Lord.

Your mercy is unfathomable.

In Jesus' name, 


"Test me, O Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind; for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth." (Psalm 26:2-3)
