When I realize I have messed up again, I remember:
If I confess my sins (even wasting an hour of time watching a TV program with NO redeeming qualities) He is faithful and just to forgive me and cleanse me of all unrighteousness.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Moreover, I remember Lamentations 3, and I rejoice that it reads for me:
21 But in my mind I keep returning to something,
something that gives me hope —
22 that the grace of Adonai is not exhausted,
that his compassion has not ended.
23 [On the contrary,] they are new every morning!
How great your faithfulness!

Thank You, Father, that Your compassion does not fail; that each moment You have a new supply for me, and thank You that You keep drawing me to return and I keep returning. Thank You. Thank You for grace and space to repent. I pray for a spirit of repentance to fall upon us; You know my legitimate concerns for people in various local assemblies; truly, HOLY SPIRIT, I ask You to bring conviction of sins and assurance of forgiveness and restoration to repentant souls. There is much violence and bitter pain in this world; particularly I pray for families grieving the death of family and friends at the Navy Yard Massacre. Father, I am so sorry please forgive and convince We the People of our sin, of righteousness, and judgment to come. I pray now for friends and family; for brothers and sisters; for every need spoken here; we entrust ourselves, our needs and our wants to You for safekeeping and answering in YESHUA’s Mighty Name.
