My Lord, help me forgive when everything inside me tells me not to. Help me let go when my heart is so wounded that I feel it’s breaking. Open my eyes to things that can heal me, things that can comfort me and make me stronger. Hold my hand and let me cry on Your shoulder. Take me to places I’ve never been, let me stand on the highest mountain, so I can see how foolish I am for clinging to my anger. Show me a glimpse of Your greatness, so that I can make it my treasure when everything else seems to crumble around me.
Teach me to make the best of all the painful circumstances in my life and help me love the people who hurt me as You love us all, although we hurt You every day by our words, thoughts and actions. Give me the wisdom to see beyond this moment, to understand and accept the deepest motivations that make people hurt other people. Give me the inner strength to heal and not to break, to comfort and not to destroy, to repay good for evil and love for hatred.

Dear God, please help me to forgive this person for hurting my feelings. Help me to see the greatness in her and to love her the way that You do. Help me to relinquish the anger that I’m experiencing so that I can walk in the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Help me to heal from this incident and to release any bitterness that I may be harboring. Please give me guidance in this situation, Holy Spirit, so that I can approach it in the way that is most pleasing to You. Help me God to do Your will. Thank You, and in Jesus’ mighty name, I pray. Amen.
TEN THOUSAND TONGUES NOT ENOUGH
by Minister Laura Rawlings
from an daily email program from Iyanla Vanzant
Good Morning God,
God, this morning I just want to say thank You. Thank You for all the opportunities I have. Thank You for all the gifts You've placed in me.
Thank You for all of that has happened on my behalf that I never even saw. Thank You for the hard times that I didn't think I'd make it through that have made me who I am today.
Thank You for the lifelines You sent when I just didn't think I could make it another day. Thank You for all the times I didn't say thank You and for the things I thanked myself for that were really You.
Thank You for the opportunity to start again every day. Thank You for not treating me the way I have treated You.
And, thank You, Lord, for not treating me the way I have treated myself.
God, if I had ten thousand tongues it still wouldn't be enough to thank You for all You've done for me.
Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.
And so it is!
