Prayer for Enlightenment

Lord, thank you for the love You have shown us by dying on the cross for our sins. Forgive me for all the things I have done that have hurt You or other people. I’m sorry if sometimes I tend to lose faith in You, especially when I feel overwhelmed by pain and suffering, like I do now.

Lord, I have been so wronged by someone I truly, deeply love. I found out that he has been carrying on a relationship with another woman, lying to me about so many things. I feel that he has disrespected me as a woman and our relationship of 4 1/2 years. He has apologized to me thru text messages but we have not spoken for over a week now. I know that underneath all this confusion, the love is still there in both of us.

I believe that he is lost, Lord. His sense of right and wrong has been overpowered by his baser desires. My prayer is for You to touch his heart, mind and spirit so he may be enlightened and realize his mistakes. With your Holy Spirit, guide him towards what is right and fair. Open the lines of communication between us so we can talk about this trial and decide what is best.

I entrust him and our relationship to you, Lord. Do what You must. Amen.
