Failure

Dear God,

I feel like a failure.  It seems like the decisions I make and the directions I take are wrong and end up miserable.  I just feel like I keep failing. 

I’m coming to You because I know that I need Your help.  You know me and you know exactly what is happening in my life already.  You know why things aren’t working out.  I would like to learn something from my failings.  Please give me the humility and wisdom to learn what I have done wrong—and be willing to make corrections.  I would ask you to renew my sense of identity.  Show me any attitudes or personality traits that are causing me to fail.  Work inside me to make me a new person.  I submit to Your work for my life—and I want to do whatever You ask me to do. 

Thank you for not looking at me as a failure.  Thank you for looking at me as your beloved child.  I will praise You and thank you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Thank you for what You have planned for me.

In Jesus’ Name,
Amen.
