Hosea 5:2 I will discipline all of them.
O Lord, discipline me. I don’t mean to say, “O Lord, bring it on.” In fact, I confess that I ask this with some hesitancy. For I know that discipline is painful and unpleasant. To accomplish it you use heartache and hardships. I desire none of these. What I do desire is to remain faithful to you. For I know the devil, the world, and my own sinful flesh seek to lead me astray. When you see me being led astray, when I’m being led down a soul-destroying and destructive path, discipline me. Do all it takes to turn me around that I never fall away from faith, but always remain faithful. In Jesus’ name, amen.
