Dear God, I confess with shame and humility how much my worship has been in the power and the will of my flesh. I have dishonored you by this, grieving Your Spirit, and bringing immeasurable loss to my own soul. Forgive me and save me from this sin. Teach me never to attempt to worship you except in spirit and in truth. Father, Your Holy Spirit dwells in me. Strengthen me with power by Him, that my inner man may indeed be a spiritual temple, where sacrifices are unceasingly offered. Teach me to yield self and the flesh and wait for the Spirit to create in me worship that is acceptable to You through Christ Jesus. I ask this in the Name of Jesus, amen.

I am a Christian in recovery following four decades of active addiction. I have a B.S. in Psychology and an M.A. in Theological Studies from Colorado Christian University, and I will be pursuing an M.A. in Divinity at Denver Seminary in May 2021. My focus is on evangelism and apologetics, doctrinal studies, and working with individuals struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues. To me, there is no "higher power" than Jesus Christ, who broke the chain of addiction in my life. I will be seeking a position as a prison chaplain and/an associate or teaching pastor upon completing my MDiv. I am currently looking for a position at a drug and alcohol rehab, where I intend to work during the three-year master's program at Denver Seminary. I believe in the power in the Name of Jesus to break every chain. I believe counseling must include discipline, and discipling must include counseling. View all posts by The Accidental Poet
