Create within me new attitudes and new ideas, as only Thou can create them.

Lord, I confess before Thee that:I have had longings and nudging from Thee which I did not translate into action;I have made decisions without consulting Thee, then have blamed Thee when things went wrong.I have said that I trusted Thee, yet have not turned my affairs over to Thee.I have been greedy for present delights and pleasures, unwilling to wait for those joys which time and discipline alone can give.I have often sought the easy way, have consistently drawn back from the road that is hard.I have been found of giving myself to dreams of what I am going to do sometime, yet have been so slow in getting started to do them.Forgive me for all the intentions that were born and somehow never lived.These, Lord Jesus, are sins, grievous in Thy sight, grievous even in mine. And now I claim Thy promise to change me. Do Thou for me what I cannot do for myself. Lead me into a new tomorrow with a new spirit. Cleanse my heart, create within me new attitudes and new ideas, as only Thou can create them.For these good gifts, I thank Thee, Lord. Amen.Peter Marshall (1902-1949)Monday of the Week of Pentecost XFOR ALL THE SAINTS, VOLUME II
