“Dear Heavenly Father,
I come to you with a broken heart. I feel weak, depressed and discouraged. In my heart, I feel you are telling me to let go and trust you…but there is security in holding on. Help me to reach out and hold onto you.
I need a supernatural increase of my faith and trust in you. The unknown is such a scary place and by letting go, I am walking into the unknown. I know if I reach out to hold your hand, I am not walking alone. I am actually walking with the protection of you covering me.
Lord, all I have is you. Holding onto the things that I need to let go is only holding back the power of God working through my life.
Help me to see past the immediate and into the future. Help me to make every little choice I need to make to stay in your will and your plan for my life.
I am keeping my eyes, my heart and my will focused straight ahead and up to you. I know you have good plans for me.
I have gotten in the habit of relying on things that are unstable—my biggest downfall is just that.
I need stability, and you are the rock and solid foundation that I must cling to. Lord, I am opening my hands and letting go of every heavy burden that I have been carrying. I give my all to you. My broken heart, my needless suffering, my martyrdom. These things are wasting precious time that I could be investing in the tasks you have for me to do.
Show me what to do with this extra time and space in my life. I will now have much more energy to give you, as giving up these burdens will open up new opportunities.
Lord, return to me the joy of my salvation as that will be the strength to invigorate this exciting new chapter of my life.
I trust you; let my trust increase everyday more and more until you take me home. In Jesus’ precious name, thank you for the gift of letting go of what was never mine to begin with. Amen.”
