“For godly grief produces a repentance not to be regretted and leading to salvation, but worldly grief produces death.”
Look down with compassion on our friend, who has been confined to a bed of sickness and is in such great physical pain. Send comfort and healing I pray and in Your gracious kindness please strengthen and heal, whatever the problem is, that has caused this illness in their body.
In Jesus name I pray,

O God, I come to You filled with hurt and sadness and even anger because of my great loss. Lord I know that You have a plan for each of our lives – but I am in such pain and grief that it is hard to focus on the truth that You do care and that You have had to face deep grief and loss too. Lord my hurt and pain runs deep and I feel that my heart is breaking – I ask you to touch my hurting heart.
I know Lord that You are the God of comfort and that You have been with me every step of the way and ask You to draw ever closer to me at this time for I feel that my whole world has been shattered.
I find it hard when people who don’t understand try to say words that they think are comforting but sometimes it makes the hurt even worse and I feel hurt and so very, very alone.
Lord I know it is true that in time the pain will lessen but please be with me – hold me close and stead me, for I know that without You I could not face another day – another hour.
I keep thinking about that song we used to sing when I was younger,
never a heartache, and never a groan, never a teardrop, and never a moan, ever a danger but there on the throne, moment by moment He thinks of His own.
Hold me Lord I pray, and keep me moment by moment…
Moment by moment I am kept in Your love,
Moment by moment I’ve life from above,
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine
Thank You Lord that You are my God,

Heavenly Father, there is so much to learn from Paul's two letters to the Corinthians, who were challenged because of their sin and brought to deep sorrow before God - leading them to a repentance without regret, and setting them back on the sanctifying pathway. I pray that I may be ready and willing to be corrected of any wrongdoing and turn from any sinful acts quickly, so that I may be returned into fellowship with You and continue along the path of daily sanctification. I pray that I may grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Lord and Saviour from this day forward, for His praise and glory, this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

day for 2 Corinthians 7:10
Heavenly Father, You know all that I have done in my life, and how I have skirted around the issue of my abortion, dismissed the significance of this sin in my life and tried to pretend that it was no big deal.
But Lord, I now confess to You this terrible sin and realise increasingly that it is detestable in Your sight to abort a new little life. I confess my wrongdoing and grieve to think of the unborn baby that I chose to terminate in my womb.
I confess my sin and repent of my casual attitude and ask for Your healing touch on my life. Help me to release this painful memory to You and to accept that Your promise of forgiveness to all who repent of their sins and turn to Christ.
Thank You that You paid the price for all my sins at Calvary and that You have promised to remove them as far as the east is from the west… Thank You in Jesus name,
