Oh Lord, I had an abortion.. thinking it was for the best, but the grief and guilt I have felt ever since I took that decision.. has haunted me, and I feel so ashamed of myself and riddled with guilt, by allowing a little life to be taken in this way.
My heart is so heavy and I find that I am not able to think about anything else and realise more and more that it is against You Lord, that I have sinned and done this great wrong.
Lord I feel broken inside and pray for Your healing and comfort. You have promised to mend the broken-hearted and to set those that are captive to guilt and shame free – and Lord, You have promised forgiveness and restoration to all who come humbly to Your throne of grace and confess their wrongdoing. My hope is in You, for You alone can restore the joy of my salvation.
Thank You for that You are a forgiving God, Whose mercies are new every morning and that You that You have promised to carry all our guilt and burdens.. and so I hand this over to You today, and ask for the healing and restoration that only You can give – and the grace to forget what is past and move on with You as my guide – I ask this in Jesus name,
Loving heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Jesus to heal the sick – both sickness in the body and the sickness of the soul. Thank You that through His death and resurrection Jesus broke the power of sin and sickness… of death and hell, and how we praise and thank You for Your tender love and deep compassion to all of us, who were dead in trespasses and sin and without hope in the world.
Thank You that Jesus is our eternal Saviour and great Physician and that He came to bear all our sicknesses, afflictions – all our suffering and pain.
I pray that You would come and visit me in my sickness and that You would grant me relief and release from the illness that is eating away at my strength and causing me such discomfort and pain. Lord, I believe that Your power of old is ever new and that You are willing and able to make me well.
Grant me the grace and patience to wait Your timing knowing that Your strength is made perfect in my weakness – touch me today I pray and bring me back to full health and feed my heart with Your love so that I may draw ever closer to You with every passing day, I ask this in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, thank You for helping me along the way to recovery from my addiction to alcohol. Thank You Father, for lifting me up out of the miry clay, saving me from my pit of despair and setting my feet on solid ground. Thank You that You cared enough for me.. to be there throughout my recovery.. to uphold me with Your righteous right hand, as You poured out grace and mercy to help, in time of need.
I repent of my foolish decline into alcoholism and confess my reluctance to admit that I was getting swept into an increasingly ungodly lifestyle. Forgive my selfish foolishness and thank You from the bottom of my heart for setting me on the right path to freedom in Christ by putting a new song in my mouth – even praise to my God.
Oh the joy and peace of knowing and trusting the Lord Jesus Christ. You have performed wonders in my life and I praise the good work that You are doing in me. Thank You for the freedom I have found in You as You have gently led me along the path to recovery from alcoholism. You are my God and have performed great and mighty wonders in me, and I praise Your holy name for ever and ever,
