Loving Lord, I recently had an abortion because I was pregnant and did not want to have another baby – but since going through the abortion Lord, I find that I am beset about by guilt and my heart feels as if it is torn in two.
Lord You have promised to be close to those whose hearts are breaking – I know that what I did was wrong, because You are the Lord of life, but Father You are also the great God of comfort and the Comforter that has promised to be with us always and to comfort us in our distresses.
Lord I have just read the prayer ‘I Had An Abortion,’ and I thank You that You died to pay the price for all my sins, including this abortion. Lord I know that any deep wound takes much time to heal, but I pray Lord that You would start to mend my broken heart today and to soothe my smarting soul.
Give me the comfort that only comes from You to face the future, knowing that in Your sight I am pure and forgiven– and thank You for Your great assurance that there is no sin that is so bad that You are unwilling to forgive.

Keep me from succumbing to the fleshly desires of this fallen world system. Thank You that my eternal salvation and position in this world depends on my relationship with Jesus and that in Him I have been freed from the power of sin and Satan. I pray that many who have not yet trusted Christ for salvation will be saved by grace through coming to faith in Him - and use me I pray to be a witness to the gospel of truth, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Your only begotten Son to become our Saviour. Thank You that in Your goodness and grace we have been given understanding, by the Holy Spirit.. so that we may know Him more fully - for He is the only way to God, the only truth from God and the only life of God. Thank You that in Him we have eternal life and the forgiveness of sins - and thank You that as members of His body we are one with Him and reconciled back to You forever - in His name we pray, AMEN.
Loving Father, I discover how easy it is for people and things, activities and customs to creep into my life and push You from the throne of my life. Help me to stay ever closer to You, in thought, word and deed, knowing that only as You are lifted up on the throne of my life, will the things of this world take their proper, subordinate place, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Dear Father, who art in heaven, thank You that YOU are my heavenly Husbandman and that You tend my life with such care and concern. Cleanse me and prune me and take away anything that you discover in me that does not glorify Your holy name.
Thank You Father that I am a heavenly branch that is united to my heavenly Vine, the lovely Lord Jesus Christ. May His life flow through mine as sap flows through the branch that is engrafted into its parent stem. Fill me with and inflow Your fullness so that I may live and move and grow and bear fruit as I abide more and more in You,
Amen.Category: Prayers on Abiding in Christ
