My confession (maybe your's also?)

Holy God, I have dedicated my life to You, yet grieve that I am still so prone to sin and so little inclined to obedience; so much attached to pleasures, no negligent of things spiritual; so ready to gratify my desires, so slow to nourish my soul; so greedy for present delights, so indifferent to lasting blessedness; so find of idleness, so wary of labor; so eager for recreation, so slack at prayer; so lofty in my profession, so low in my practice; so severe with my neighbors, so indulgent with myself; so eager to find fault, so resentful of criticism; so weak in adversity, so self-satisfied in prosperity; so helpless apart from You, yet so willing to be committed to You. Help me to be more conformed to Your holiness, that I may truly grow in my faith, for Your glory, Amen.
