You want our obedience and as simple as that is, we often forget it
We think you want only our ritual and sacrifice
Our church attendance
Our repeated prayers
Our taking of communion
Our regular bible reading
While you do love us doing all these things for you, you only love it when it is done with the right heart.
What you want above all is our obedience.
Lord, help me to be obedient
Let me learn your ways so that I may obey them
Let me learn your words so that I may obey them
Forgive me, Lord, for my disobedience and reliance on the things I can give you or do for you.
Instead, Lord, please change my heart and make me obedient.
