Heavenly Father, as we face increasingly problematic circumstances in the world, and in our own private lives, I pray that I will trust Your plan for my life, knowing when I am crushed You will always bind up my wounds, and when we have received many strikes, Your healing hand is ready to bring us forth as gold, for Your greater praise and glory. Thank You for the beautiful example of the LORD Jesus, Who when He suffered, did not threaten, but committed Himself to the One Who judges justly. It is in His name I pray and for His greater glory, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Job 5:18
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,
