I humble myself for faculties misused,

opportunities neglected,

words ill-advised,

I repent of my folly and inconsiderate ways,

my broken resolutions, untrue service,

my backsliding steps,

my vain thoughts.

O bury my sins in the ocean of Jesus’ blood

and let no evil result from my fretful temper,

unseemly behaviour, provoking pettiness.


This is an extract from Valley of Vision. The Valley of Vision is a collection of Puritan prayers, poems and devotionals. It is a modern spiritual classic. It was authored by Arthur Bennett and published by The Banner of Truth Trust. After God’s Word, next to The Pilgrim’s Progress and Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, The Valley of Vision has been a very influential book in the life of Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni.
