I Had An Abortion

Lord Jesus, my heart is aching as I had an abortion a long time ago and I still feel guilty for I know now that what I did was wrong –it was a sin against You Lord - but Father at the time I was frightened. I was pregnant – but now I realise that my sin was against You in so many ways and that the responsibility is mine – Oh God, I have wondered if I could ever be forgiven. I have confessed my sin so many times, …my promiscuous ways and the abortion I had….

Thank You Lord that at last You have brought peace into my heart for I now realise that You died on the cross to pay the price of all my sin – even those I may yet commit in the future.. Thank You that all my sins are forgiven forever - because Jesus took the punishment that I deserved.

Thank You that my promiscuous ways and the abortion I had is already forgiven at the cross and that I am Your child – simply because I trust in Jesus – thank You Lord… thank You for forgiving all my sin and thank You that because I trust in Jesus, there is NO condemnation on me at all. Thank You for sending this healing balm into my heart and thank You that am forgiven – forever…

Lord I pray that if I hear the voice of accusation in my ears or in my heart that You would help me to lift up my voice in praise to You for You have promised that I am forgiven, by the blood of Jesus, and I am not under condemnation.

Lord I want to live a life that is pleasing to You.. Heal me fully I pray and thank You in Jesus name,


“And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:”
