Lord I need you. I am at a crossroads in my life, I have been praying, I have given it to you, I have asked for direction, I have tried to find my way, and yet I do not feel at Peace. I am lost, confused and drifting in and out of my thoughts and wants and what to do. I know that you know what is best for me, and no matter what road I choose you won’t leave me or abandon me, but at this point I am scared and feel alone, and I am afraid of the choice ahead of me, and what it will bring. One road seems like less stress, and what I need in my life for me, the other is making me feel like I am abandoning one of your children and leaving him behind to struggle with his addiction. I need your strength more than ever, your wisdom, your guidance. I need to know what to do, I ask, and I feel you are giving me free will and a choice to make on my own, and I am really struggling with that choice. I ask that you take this burden from me, all of it. I ask that you come into my life and forgive my wrongs, my sins, my short comings, come into my heart and help mend it from all the damage and make it whole again, surround me with your blessing, people that will fill me with joy, peace and happiness each day. Allow me to focus on my true purpose, to serve you, help others and love as you do. Be with me each moment, to help my soul heal, to show me through your words and actions the way in which will lead me back to you. Lord, my God, the I AM, I need you. As I pray for my own peace, I pray that you also work on the people in my life that have wronged me, help me to forgive them, and move on, and be with them to help them forgive me. Lift the burdens from them, help them in their addictions, their sins, help them find peace in you as I am now. Help them Lord, as I do not think they know you. Show them the way, allow them to see what they need to see to make changes in their lives, but not for me, for them. Allow me to move on Lord, with peace in my heart. I also thank you. I am grateful for all you do in my life, my wonderful family and friends, my career, the qualities I have inside me. I am grateful for each day I am allowed to wake up and breathe in your glory. I do know you, I love you more than I have ever shown, and I have forsaken you. I have pushed you away for the love of others, and I have failed. I fail because I have not carried you with me. I ask that you rid those influences from my life, and allow me to surround myself with others that lift you up so that I may always and forever more carry you high, as a light for others to see. I pray Lord, for your peace in me. To know your love as I have never known it before. I ask this Lord, today and each day before me. In your name I pray, Amen.
