A Prayer Letting Go

a prayer letting go 2012

Dear Jesus, I come to you now with a broken heart and a weary spirit. I dont know how I can carry on each day knowing that a part of me had already gone, never ever to return. Can I ever be complete again? Can I ever smile again at the coming of a new day? Day after day I miss him more and more. Day after day my longing grows but it can never be fulfilled. How can I possibly live my life again? How do I overcome this feeling that I am now all alone and I shall always be alone or the rest of my life?

How do I let go? The places we’ve been to, the celebrations we had together, they will never be the same. The emptiness in my heart is so big I can no longer breathe sometimes.

Help me O God! The pain of separation seems more painful to me than death itself. I don’t know how much longer I can carry on. Help me carry on this day Lord. Help me to let go, I pray. Though I may not forget, help me to remember how you have always carried me through. Though the pain may not yet go away, assist me in carrying this cross with hope in my heart.

Let me not forget the people who love me and assist me in this hour of need. May I find strength in them, consolation in the generosity of their hearts. And whenever I’m afraid, let there always be a hand to hold on to, a smile to brighten up my path. Send down your angels Lord and may I recognize your hand upon your every gift and blessing. Give me something to do that I may not feel useless, yet teach me also to rest knowing all will be well after the long dark night.

You are my Rock and my Provider, Savior and Defender, Friend and Lover who will never ever let me down. You will lead me through this day. You will fill my every hour with peace, my every moment with thoughts of your love. I cannot bear the burdens of tomorrow but I will offer you all that I have today. Today is yours O God. This moment is yours. Embrace me and take my hand. I am in your heart. I am safe. I am loved.

    Dear Joyce,

    It has been a while since I last wrote you about my life. I hope you will still remember me. I think I am doing well. I am losing weight, gaining my confidence back and I think I can slowly move on with my life. Everyday, I miss my friend a little less and I am grateful that God gave me an opportunity to move on (albeit slowly..) . Thru work, I was relocated for a couple months in Canada. It was just me and God and I had some time to think about what I want in life. I am constantly improving myself and have been doing things/hobbies that I had never tried in the past.

    I am now back safely in New Zealand and I am still feeling His peace with me. I a trying to live my life with a gentle stride and wait whatever God has prepared for me in the future.

    Please keep on praying for me. Will do the same for you and your cyber ministries :-)

    Thank you so much my cyber friend!

      They said time heals all wound, but why mine is becoming more painful as time passed by :(

      I need to live again but my heart has been torn into pieces that I dont know how can I piece it back again.

      Oh God give me a reason, Im down on bended knees.

    Hi, Rhea! Sometimes, even the healing process is painful.  We may think that nothing is happening, but underneath the pain, God is there, healing us and working out something for our good.

      hi Joyce…moving on is very hard. Every piece of my heart is broken into pieces. It’s been a year, and yet I can’t move on. I don’t know how to start. When i start thinking of letting go of him, i feel like dying. Please pray for me to overcome this feeling. It is really hard, and I can’t control the pain and the anger. Thank you. Please inspire us more.
