Pray This: Prayer of Release (a Repost)

3.19.13 Prayer of Release

Prayer of Release

I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until the day of his return. 2 Timothy 1:12 NLT

Heavenly Father, I release to You the burdens that I have been carrying, burdens that You never intended for me to carry. I cast all my cares upon You–all my worries, all my fears. You have told me not be anxious about anything, but rather to bring everything to You in prayer with thankfulness.

Father, calm my restless spirit, quiet my anxious heart, still my troubling thoughts with the assurance that You are in control. I let go of my grip upon the things I have been hanging onto, with opened hands I come to You. I release to Your will all that I am trying to manipulate; I release to Your authority all that I am trying to control; I release to Your timing all that I have been striving to make happen.

I thank You for Your promise to sustain me, preserve me, and guard all that I have entrusted to Your keeping. Protect my heart and mind with Your peace, the peace that passes all understanding. Father, may Your will be done in my life, in Your time, and in Your way.

Scriptures: Psalm 55:22, 1 Peter 5:7, Philippians 4:6, Matthew 6, Isaiah 26:3, Luke 11:2

    It is so true that with God we can let our cares become his cares; simply because we’re his children and he loves and cares for each and everyone of us. How much more would the Heavnly Father do for his children? Though the world is filled with evil the Lord cries out for them are lost or refuse to hear the Lord’s voice. The Lord never gives up! Even with the nation the of Babylon the Lord’s hand is outstreched for them. The Lord is Gracious and Good! Cast your cares upon him for he cares for you. Tammy

    Just prayed this prayer through tears. THANK YOU for the repost.
    We are carrying so many burdens right now.
    The chorus ” The Lord knows the way through the wilderness, all we have to do is follow…” has been coming to mind over and over.
    Teach me to trust YOU Heavenly Father… that is my prayer.
