If the Prayer Fits…

A friend posted the prayer below on FB, and then asked, “How can I pray for you?” I replied that her prayer fit me perfectly. How about you? Does it fit?

art kimberly 1Lord,
Today I release my gifts to you – and the temptations to use them to exalt myself or to protect myself.

Today I release my sinfulness to you – and the temptations to try and fix myself or to deny that I have a sinful nature.

Today I release my longings to you – and the temptations to
try and fill them myself by needing to control or to pretend altogether that I don’t have them.
