Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who mercifully restores my soul within me. Great is Your faithfulness.
Lord, heal our hearts.
Heal us of past hurt, trauma, wickedness, pain, loss and fear. Be present with us in those memories and nightmares and help us to give them to You and receive healing in return.
Thank You that yesterday is over. We ask forgiveness for our past mistakes, but we know only You can turn them into paths for eternal blessing.
Thank You that the person I was yesterday is dead. I am a new person every morning. I can learn from my past, but I am not chained to it. You give me a fresh page every day. I can make different choices. I can praise You in the pain. I can seek You when I am afraid. I can trust that You will make all things right if I surrender to Your will.
Thank You that nothing I do or fail to do can disrupt Your plan for eternity. You've already taken it all into account.
Heal our hearts, Lord, spiritually and physically.
For all those who are in the midst of physical heart issues - and there are many - I ask Your provision and healing. But above all, Lord, give us Your heart for the world. Let us shed the skin of past pain and move forward into the next glorious day of service until You take us home forever.
In Jesus' name,
