A Prayer for When You Need Another Chance and Whimsical Wednesday Blogger Linkup

A Prayer of Forgiveness…
A Prayer for When You Need Another Chance

Heavenly Father,
While you know everything about me
Before I ever tell you,
My head bows low especially today.
I’m so sorry, Lord;
I never meant for it to happen.
The boundaries were lowered
And I failed to choose well.
My decision requires your grace and mercy;
I simply have no other recourse.
Praise you that your love truly knows no limits
And your grace cannot be measured.
Praise you for your unfailing mercy
And that your mercy possesses no boundaries…
That you, dear God, expand beyond time, space, and matter
To forgive beyond the wreckage of my soul.
Amen.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,so far has he removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12

    What a wonderful prayer! There is no mistake, no misjudgment, no sin that God isn’t bigger than! His arms stretch wide enough to cover it all. Oh, how I’m grateful for that!!

    GOD BLESS!

    “To forgive the wreckage of my soul” This hit home this morning in a big way. Even in the times that we are devastated and feel that we cannot repair the damage, God steps in and says “I forgive you”. Such great truth for everyone! Thank you for the prayer and the link up! :)

    Rachel, didn’t have time to comment this morning when I read this prayer but I felt like you wrote it just for me and as I read it again, I need it again tonight. Feeling like situations are just out of control, well, out of my control…and I am making impulsive decisions and choices trying to make it all right. All the while knowing that God is the Master of His Divine plan not only for me but for everyone. My knowing and accepting are all mixed up. Praying for His forgiveness and strength and the wisdom to accept the things I cannot change, hoping and expecting that God will hear my prayer and answer me…in faith and trust I ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen. Thank you Rachel! God bless!
    ps. Andrew is having a great run of good health…prayers and thoughts always for Taylor!
