Dear Jesus, I’m praying for the forgiveness of my sins, whether of rebellion or of unwillingness to listen to your call and claim upon my life. Quicken my awareness of your presence in the midst of my daily living. Cast out the blindness of my soul so that I will be listening for you and not Satan and his demons. I offer my prayer in the name of the true Holy Spirit. Amen.
