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,
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many times You restore health and strength to those who are sick. Thank You for the times we have seen those with life-threatening diseases made whole and strengthened by Your goodness and grace. We thank You for the doctors; nurses; surgeons and medics You use to bring healing to sick souls and for the amazing medications and healing supplements that so often bring restoration to a sick body or diseased mind. May we never forget to bring our needs and petitions to You in prayer FIRST, and may we never forget to give You the praise and glory due, when health has been restored - for YOU are the only life-Giver and You provide all the life-giving curatives for every ill. Thank You that our times are in Your hands and may we always remember to sing praise to Your holy name, and not remain silent O Lord our God, - but give thanks to You forever and ever, in Jesus' name we pray, AMENSource: Verse of the day for Psalm 30:2
