Dear God,

There is so much pressure on me right now. I’ve done things that I could never have imagined myself doing. What is happening to me? I don’t want this kind of life. I have made a mess of things. My life is literally out of control like a tornado, destroying everything in its path. Because I have been hurt in my past, I am hurting people. I don’t know much about You but I hear that You can change lives. I don’t know if You will even receive me but I hope that You will. God, I don’t know how to pray. Save me. Change my life, God. I’m sorry for everything. My upbringing was not the best and I didn’t have good examples for parents so I lived my life like a broken compass. I’m not making excuses but just stating facts. I know my hurt comes as a result of this and many other things. I’m an adult now and I don’t want to live a life of excuses and missed opportunities. Forgive me for all that I’ve done. Help me to receive and accept Your forgiveness. Help me to be able to forgive those who have hurt me. I lay down my pride, my hard heart that I used as a shield, and my life before You now and ask You to rewrite my life for Your glory. Show me which way to go as I wait on You to act on my behalf.

Thank you,
