LORD your PRODIGAL DAUGHTER has returned home

Updated on May 2, 2013

I've decide it's time for me to return home

to where I belong in the bosom of Christ.

My heart is so soar of breaking God’s heart

doing and saying things everyday that I

should not. I don’t mean to go wrong or

grope around, it is my desire to serve

the Lord though often I’ve failed him

and cause him such pains.

Sick and tired of satan running

me around yielding to his stupid

temptations, from today I'm no

longer his clown.

Lord you know I love you and I don’t

delight in wrong, when am wrong

I am the first to tell it to your

dear Son. Oh Lord why am I so

wretched and undone look at the silly

things I’ve said and done.

Lord I know you love me and I love you

to but help me dear LORD to show my

gratefulness and appreciation more to

you. Forgive me for all the rotten ways,

I know I am unworthy to even mention

your name but you are ever merciful and

before your throne I come pleading to

your Son to ask you for forgiveness and

turn my wretched life around.

Oh LORD my heart is soar look what I’ve become

a fugitive from God I feel like the prodigal son

LORD you called me and here I am, empty me

of all myself pride and secret sins inside. Renew

my spirit like and eagle , hold my hands guide my

steps until we become one.

      Hi LadyF, We feel unworthy of Christ's love after being out in the world and doing as we please but no matter what we've gone through, Jesus is there waiting for us to let Him into our lives. That's how we are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Great hub and voted up!

      A beautiful prayer and I do know those feelings, we many do I am sure. If we could keep our eyes fastened on the prize at our ending instead of letting this world tempt us. Living in the spirit and not the flesh should be our aim but having to survive puts us into the world...and God does understand. He will get us through.

      Hello Joanna,

      Praise God, for He is always waiting and there for us when we cry out to Him in anguish and repentance. Waiting to receive us back into the embrace of the Lord. Great hub all to the Glory of God.
