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,
“Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art
“For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying
, This is
Zion, whom no man seeketh after.”
“O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.”
“When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered, and the wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, and
the troop of robbers spoileth without.”
“For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not for
my transgression, nor for
my sin, O LORD.”
“Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou
in the fear of the LORD all the day long.”
“He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them
from their destructions.”
“Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.”
“He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.”
“The sacrifices of God are
a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.”
“And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”
“For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.”
