PostSubject: Dear God 4   Sun Nov 06, 2011 9:34 pm

Dear God,

Well, you guessed it. My life is still a mess. I am doing better at tithing though and my faith is a little stronger so all is better than it was. I want to thank you for all the truly wonderful things you have given me although for the life of me I can’t figure out what I did to receive all this goodness.

Lord, I hate to ask for so much all the time, but I am such a needy person and after all is said and done and I have tried on my own to take care of things you are still the only one who can do the real work that has to be done. I ask that you heal my heart, mind, and body that I might be whole again. I feel like sometimes my life is in pieces that I can’t put all together. But if you could make me whole again maybe I could be of more use to you here. God, forgive those who have hurt my heart and help me forgive them also for I know you must have something better in store for me now.

I ask that you help my church family to grow. I know that numbers aren’t that important, but help them to grow in faith, love, wisdom, and tolerance and give them the knowledge to know what you want them to do and give them the courage and ability to accomplish your wishes. They are a great church family and I love them dearly.

Please forgive me Lord where I have failed you. I know I am not as good a person as you would have me to be. Help me to be more in your image as you want me to be. I still could use more faith for I sometimes still take it upon myself to try to rectify problems when I know I should turn it over to you and leave it alone. Instead, I ask you to take care of my problems and then proceed to try and take it back to do it myself. So could you see your way clear to let me understand how to let it go?

Sometimes, I think it is wrong to constantly ask so much from you. Is it? There are so many questions I have, and sometimes the answers aren’t clear. Teach me how to listen in my heart to your answers to my questions and your instructions for my life please. I don’t seem to hear quite as good as I need to.

God please forgive me for judging people. I don’t want you to think I am trying to do what is your job. Sometimes its hard not to hold others to a higher standard because you know and like them. Help them Lord not to judge me because I don’t think I would look very well in their eyes. Forgive those who have done something to hurt me or my loved ones Lord, and help me to forgive them also.

You have given me so much and I have given so little back to you so forgive me for not giving of myself more. The love you have shown me is more than I can ever give back but with your help I will spend the rest of my life trying. I know its wrong to ask, but when are you coming back? This world is such a mess and I miss you so. In the meantime, could you take care of my loved ones and help them if they are not your child as yet? Let me know if there is anything I can do to make sure they get saved as soon as possible.

Your humble and loving servant

Love the way you bear your soul in your written prayers. They reflect the way, I'm sure, the rest of us feel. You also seem to hit upon all of the most important points we should all be praying about. I really enjoy reading these.

Am glad you enjoy them. Its my way of getting to the heart of the matter. Sometimes I just feel its the best way for me to pray and I know God listens to them because he has answered many of them. You will probably see more from time to time.

I think it's a wonderful idea to write them out, because it would help keep your mind from wondering and enable you to stay on topic in your prayer. Something many of us struggle with.
