Soul Searching Prayer

Soul Searching Prayer

Does my life please You as I live each day? 
Do I glorify You, Lord, in everything I say? 
Do I show others Your love in all that I do? 
When others see me do they also see You? 

Are my motives pure– I know that You see? 
Would I want other Christians to be just like me? 
You understand my thoughts– You’re the only One Who can. 
When I’m all by myself am I a God pleasing man? 

I don’t mean am I perfect, for without Christ I know I’m not, 
But am I doing doubtful things hoping that I won’t be caught? 
Are there any hidden issues in the depths of my heart 
That, as a born again Christian, I should bid to depart? 

If there’s any thought or action that’s bringing You shame, 
Help me to surrender it in Jesus’ blessed Name. 
I don’t want to continue anything that displeases You, 
And I want to do everything that You would have me do. 

Dear God, in Your wisdom, You know how to keep me straight, 
If You ever see me straying correct me before it’s too late. 
By Your grace You have saved me and forgiven all my sin, 
I love You, I thank You, and I praise You. Amen.
