Prayer For When You Feel Like A Failure


I have the desire to do what is good, but sometimes I do not always carry it out. I am sorry for the times when I disobeyed you and chose to walk down a path which led me away from you. Help me to find joy in obeying your law and to forever give thanks that you have delivered me through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


I confess my sins to you. I am sorry for failing to do what you've asked of me. I know that you are faithful and just and will forgive me. Please purify me from all unrighteousness and enable me to turn away from my sin and towards you. Amen.

You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you. Hear my prayer, Lord; listen to my cry for mercy. When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me. I have fallen short of your glory and need your help to overcome. I pray that you light my steps and lead me out of the darkness and back into your light. Amen.

Dear Lord,

I am sorry for my sins. I know that you blot out my transgressions and have given your son Jesus Christ so that my sin is no longer a barrier to having a relationship with you. Give me the strength to move past my failures and move in the direction of righteousness. Amen.

Lord please walk beside me and life me away from desceipt from hurt from worry and please try to keep b on the right path as others don't me. Remove the thought of my addictionS.. please spare me and my babies the heartache. In Jesus name I pray


Nothing is as I had wanted it,

As I thought it would be,

As I believed I had been promised.

Perhaps my aspirations were nothing more

Than my own wishful thinking,

But the despair from my failure is real.

Nothing could be more real

Than how heartbroken I am,

Knowing my life shouldn't have been this way.

As a youth, when I turned my life,

Along with my will and my purpose,

Over to You for safekeeping,

I believed I would experience abundance,

But that has not been my lotnot even close.

It seems like I have failed

At everything I've been called to do,

And when I've needed You the most,

It feels like You have been very distant.

My enemies delight at my misfortune.

The pain from their sharp, cutting looks

Is ever before me, stinging me deeply,

While also crushing my soul and my spirit,

Derailing my efforts to get back on my feet.

Those I've trusted have used me

Until there was nothing left, mocking and

Rejecting me without a backward glance.

Like a fool, I never saw it coming.

As I recoiled from my wounds,

I called on Your name, but You haven't been close;

At least, I cannot sense Your presence.

I didn't want to fail, Father.

You know that I didn'tbut I have,

And I can't change the outcome.

Many doors have now been closed,

But my life is not yet finished,

And other opportunities will eventuate.

When they do, help me learn

All the lessons I need to know.

I don't want to ever be in this

Hopeless, tortured place again

Where my life has no future and no promise.

Lord, help me let go of my fear of failure. I know Satan wants to use my fears to hold me back from living boldly for You. Forgive me for not living in faith, and help me from this moment on to live with bold confidence in You. Lord, help me not compare myself to others around me. I pray instead that I can keep my eye on You and live a life that proclaims Your excellence. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.

Dear Lord,

I come to You today to ask for help. You are my everything. Lord, I need rest. I give You my worry. Take it, Lord. I accept Your peace, love, and understanding. Help me to turn to You and not to myself. Help me to stop doing and start trusting. Help me to wait on Your answers, because I know that they are good. Give me wisdom, hope, and peace. Thank you, Lord, for Your patience and grace. I love You, and I know You love me so much more than I could ever imagine.
