Dear God, help me to know how much you love me. Help me to have the courage to follow your example of love and keep no record of wrongs. But first, help me to understand and know the true record of wrongs I’ve harbored in my heart. I need this truth to come out into the open. Give me the strength to swing wide the doors of my heart and let the light in. Give me the courage to face what’s inside. Give me the insight to know how to weave back together the fabric of my life with your love. You make all things new, Father. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew my spirit, as your Word says.
