Prayer to Help me find my way again.

by Lauren (NY)

Dear Lord, I’ve been so lost. I haven’t been myself lately, and I need your direction. My life is changed. I don’t know what happened, but suddenly I’m trying to deal with things, problems, that I’ve created for myself. Problems that are bigger than what I can usually take on. It feels like I might be in some kind of dark period in my life.

I’ve lost my direction. All the things that I used to say I wouldn’t do, I’ve found myself doing. I feel so ashamed, and the people I love the most are disappointed. I’m so disgusted with myself, and how deceitful, and careless I’ve been. I could be pregnant, or have an std. I can’t believe I’ve allowed myself to get this bad. I can’t handle the pain I’ve brought to my parents. They would disown me if they even knew the whole truth. I don’t know how it got so bad, but it has. I’m in a slump that I now don’t know how to get out of. Please, I beg of you to hear me out. I need you right now. Help me find my way again.

I know I’ve asked you for many chances before, but I’m begging you for another one. I’ll try to be a better person. I will. Lord, I believe you’re the only one that can help me right now. Please be my guide. Amen.
