A Woman’s Prayer| What Speaks to Me Today


“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Jeremiah 29:11

A woman’s prayer! Lord I am tired. Father, today I stretch my hand to thee, no other help I know. Because I’ve made a mess of my life, I need you to clean it up! Yes, I know that there were other options, better choices, and decisions that would have made more sense in the long run. Father forgive me, for I have sinned.

This is my prayer

To my Father, Who art in heaven; while I have your attention please deal with me accordingly based on the severity of my misteps. I am broken, but not ashamed to come before You, Lord.

This morning I heard somebody say, “my life is not supposed to be like this!” Last night another uttered, “Lord Lord, what have I done? Does it seem as though every time you call on God you’re in trouble, heartbroken, lost or drowning in sin? If the answer is yes, be thankful that Christ does not treat us as our sins deserve.

Perhaps you’re too embarrassed to say “I screwed up!”? Just look around you, surely you can see that you are not alone. But, waiting for others to come before the Lord could prove costly. You see, nobody knows how much time they have left to repent, finish work left undone, or tell somebody how much you love them. For that reason, today is always the best day in the world to call on God. Not only is tomorrow not promised it is also out of sight.

God knows that dealing with the present is more than most can accomplish with precision success. So why do people’s minds constantly venture toward the future looking for things the present has yet to reveal? Could it be that the nature of many mirrors that of bears? They mess and step back in it? If your life is a mess there is hope; God can pull you out and make you like new.

As for answers to questions concerning the future I do not have any? However, I do have answers to questions about decisions I’ve made in the present. Why do we do what we do? Asking, and answering this question is the first step to rising above unwelcomed circumstances.

I don’t know about you but today I’m ready to fess up, and admit that I am not as strong as I pretend to be. More importantly, I confess that there have been times when I was dead wrong. About? Well, that’s between me and God!

So, today Lord, I come to you just as I am, asking for forgiveness, for the power invested in Your mighty eraser of transgressions, both intentional and unknown. ~A Woman’s Prayer~

~A Women’s Prayer~

You hate sins that hurt other people, which all sins do. For that reason, I ask for forgiveness. I’m sorry for hurting, or harming anybody as a result of my words, thoughts, actions or deeds. God, please don’t keep me weak, filled with pride or plain stubborn. Above all things, let me know if I’ve become so stubborn in my ways that I’m stupid! ~A Woman’s Prayer~

Father, God, give me courage to correct myself before attempting to redirect others from places all too familiar to me. Oh Lord, “open my eyes so that I can clearly see me, myself and all of my faults. Whatever you do Lord, please don’t allow me to retreat back into a state of denial. Father, would you please pluck me out of my comfort zone. ~A Woman’s Prayer~

Finally, Lord, point me in the direction that affords your children with diving protection; show me that whatever I’ve done on my own is will never be enough. Help me embrace truth, and reality, by acknowledging that being a child of God is a lifelong work. Amen!

As you read more you will learn how this way of thinking can lead to manifesting unhealthy, unhappy and toxic lifestyles. ~A Woman’s Prayer~
