Bruce Larson tells of a man who before he became a Christian had a terrible time with profanity. After his conversion, one day at work, he got angry and let out a cuss word. He immediately went off by himself and prayed, "Oh Lord, please forgive me.. I just swore, I am so sorry." Then about an hour later something else happened to upset him and his old habit broke out again and he swore. Once again he went off by himself and this time he prayed, "Oh, Father, can you forgive me, I did it again." And he heard the Lord say, "Did what again?"
