Dear Lord Jesus I am really struggling in my life with decision making, worry and faith. For several years now I have been lost like a helpless ship at sea drifting in the darkness. The more lost and desolate I become the more frustrated and angry I get. It’s here where I push further away from your love and into my belief I can only rescue myself.
My efforts to force my way out of this void leaves me numb, alone and bitter. I have shut out your love. I have turned away from your light and accepted my life as one of failure unable to be loved, forgiven or helped. Lord Jesus I am fighting hard to believe your love transcends all understanding.
I am resisting your open arms believing any moments of peace are traps into which I will fall. I must let go and believe your gracious love will comfort me and steer me to serenity. Please Lord Jesus believe that I am sorry for my sins and am ready to welcome your infinite perfect wisdom.
I need you Lord Jesus more than I have ever needed anything before. I am hurting and sad and weak. Please provide the strength, calmness and clarity so I may sail in your light forever. Thank you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
