It amazes me how You work all things for our good. No matter how difficult or impossible the situation may seem, You always have a way – Your perfect way – of sorting things out.
There’ve been times when I have been tempted to give up. Times I have even wanted to run away from my problems, but You have taught me that running away isn’t the answer – running to You, is.
I thank You, Lord, that I can always run to You. You listen to me and see me at all times, not just when things are good, or only when they’re bad. You’re always there, constant, dependable. Nothing is ever impossible for You, Lord. Thank You for always seeing me, always hearing me, always helping me, and always loving me. My life is in Your hands, and that’s the best place it could ever be! I love You, Lord. Thank you.

Prayers from the heart is a series of short prayers written with the intent of helping you in your prayer time. There is no ‘magic formula’ to prayer, and no set of written words that will make whatever you want happen. Simply pray from your heart, be honest with your Heavenly Father and remember that He loves you. If this prayer or any other prayers from this series make a good starting point for you, please feel free to use them!
Here are a few helpful scriptures about prayer, as well:
And we will receive from him whatever we ask because we obey Him
and do the things that please Him.
1 John 3:22
You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.
And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will,
He heareth us: And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask,
we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.
1 John 5:14-15
Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it.
And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—
you want only what will give you pleasure.
