Divine Creator. Thank you for this chance to speak honesty with another person about the events of my life. Help me accept responsibility for my actions.

Amen.

God, please set aside everything that I think I know about myself, my broken-ness, my spiritual path and You, for an open mind and a new experience with myself, my broken-ness, my spiritual path and especially You. Amen.
God, I offer myself to You, to build with me and to do with me as You wish. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may do Your will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Your Power, Your Love, and Your Way of Life. May I do Your will always! Amen.
My Creator, I am now willing that You should have all of me, good and bad. I pray that You now remove from me every single defect of character that stands in the way of my usefulness to You and my fellows. Grant me strength as I go out from here to do Your bidding. Amen.
