1. O Almighty God! Although men are unworthy to love You, and their love and hearts are worthless, I believe You can see the intent in men’s hearts. And even though the bodies of men do not meet with Your acceptance, I wish for You to accept my heart.
2. I followed God for so long, yet I never loved Him, without true love for Him. This is my biggest debt. Even though I stayed with God, I did not know Him, did not know Him, and even spoke resistant words behind His back. Thinking of these things makes me feel even more indebted to God. I am less than dust. I can do nothing but dedicate this loyal heart to God. Oh, I’ll loyally, loyally satisfy God and devote myself to Him, devote myself to Him wholeheartedly. I ask for nothing in my life but that my heart love God and my heart’s desire be accepted by God.
