Prayer For Regret
Lord, this is bigger than me. I am not able to strip it out of my mind. The consequences are too grave, so it's all yours, God. You say you're the healer and restorer of lost dreams? Then Good. This one is for YOU! I completely entrust it into your care.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding," (Ephesians 1:3-8).
God's forgiveness amazes me because my nature wants to make up for my regrets instead of releasing them. Release your regret through confession and receive God's forgiveness.
So many times I have said no when I should have said yes and yes when I should have said no.
My past haunts me - decisions gone bad, relationships that fell apart, opportunities that fear stole from me.
I replay the notes to old songs of my life. I retrace my steps and beg you for a second chance.
So many things did not turn out like I planned.
Painful realities regularly revisit me. They desire to be my constant companions. But the Bible says that there is hope in you, Lord.
I will see hope in you.
I will believe that in days to come, I will be able to turn back and look at my past and see beauty for ashes.
