Heal my heart and give me beauty for ashes I pray. Help me not to focus on past pain but rather look to the promise of Your blessed hope and the life everlasting that You have prepared for me in heaven.
Thank You for all the good times I have had in my life and help me Lord to face this birthday anniversary without any bitterness, but rather may the sweetness of Your love surround me.
Fill me Lord with Your comfort and peace – and use me Lord to be comfort to others who may have to experience some of the pain that I have gone through. I trust Lord that in Your strength I will be able to face the future with hope in my heart –that only comes from You, in Jesus name I pray,
