A Prayer of Letting Go

Great God of Love,

Forgive me for my feeble attempts to control Your world that I so often don't understand.

Forgive me for the arrogance that convinces me that my way is right.

Forgive me for the impatience of my ignorant demands and childish whims.

Forgive me for my careless words of manipulation and deceit.

Fill me with Your Spirit of grace and truth.

Fill me with the hope of trust and stubborn faith.

Fill me with the evidence of things not seen.

Fill me with the love and freedom held out to me with bloodied hands.

Fill me with the promise that all things work together for good for those who love You.

Fill my heart to overflowing with acceptance, gratitude and praise.



  1. I love this prayer. I especially love fill me with the love and freedom held out to me with bloodied hands. I must daily praise Him. I also loved fill me with evidence of things not seen. Yes, fill me Lord. Thank you for this beautiful prayer.

  2. I love the juxtaposition of Forgive me/Fill me. This is a simply beautiful heart cry. May our Lord hear it. I will pray it right along with you!

    1. We are so blessed to have a God who forgives our failings and hears our prayers. Thanks for your kind words.

  3. Thanks for sharing this beautiful prayer from your heart. I could pray many of the same things in letting go. Marilyn

    1. It seems that the struggle of letting go never ends. I'll be praying right along with you!
