Prayer for Acceptance of God’s Love

Prayer for Acceptance of God’s Love


God, Jesus—whoever You are—I am frightened. You see, I have never been loved in my life.

I cannot remember when I truly felt the warm flannel blanket of a mother’s love around my shoulders. God, I have trouble with any father figure in my life because mine hit me for years and
my mother did nothing to stop it.

In my heart, I desperately long to have 
a loving father and mother in my life, but I am also desperately afraid of letting someone into my inner soul. My soul has been pierced and assaulted so many times. I am struggling with my desire and need to be loved and
my fear of being wounded again.

As I read this and offer a prayer, I ask You to assure me 
of the genuineness of Your love. Sow seeds of trust in my soul so that I will trust Your loving-kindness.

May Your love banish my fears and replace them with a relationship that will fill the hole in my heart.  Amen.

Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
