Lord God, I am seeing with increasing clarity that if my actions, words, communications and lifestyle don't match my faith-confession then maybe the confession is not valid. My life is my confession.

Let my life sing Your praise and worship Your Majesty in the constancy only a dailyness and yieldedness Your Presence can supply.
