Even then, you are whispering your love in my years; causing me to hear you. Help me to accept and know the depth of your love for me. Please help me find peace in the knowledge that you care for me; and that you love me regardless of my faults.

I pray that your love which you’ve poured out in my heart will cast out every fear from it. Jesus, may I have rest and peace of mind as I embrace your love for me.

Lord, forgive me for the days that I doubted your love and abilities. Forgive me for the times I tried to be strong, instead of relying on your capable hands.

Heavenly Father, I have borne this grudge for so long. I can’t seem to accept the fact that someone I called a friend could hurt me this much. Lord, I have been so mad at her, but I’m mostly mad at myself for trusting a mere mortal so much.

Lord, people say I should forgive her, but I sincerely don’t know how to. Though I think she doesn’t deserve it, but this unforgiveness is robbing me of my peace of mind. It’s also affecting my relationship with you.
