Personal Growth Is on the Horizon Prayer

I pray to You in Your infinite wisdom that no struggle I ever face will be too great for me to develop and grow through it to become a healthier person at the end. Amen.
An Epiphany for Well-Being Prayer
Dear God, please grant me the wisdom to carry on through any roadblocks and plateaus we might reach on our journey of healing. We stall on our path to health and well-being only when we refuse to see Your light at the end of the tunnel. When we keep this light in mind, no barrier, no matter how great, can stop us from reaching it and You. That is the epiphany we can all have that will allow us to keep our faith in any situation. Amen.
Mending the Broken Prayer
I pray to my Heavenly Father for reassurance during all dark moments in my life that the broken body, mind, and even spirit can be mended with His love.

They will, in the end, be perfectly healed with His gracefulness and compassion. Amen.
Relieve Me of the Hurt Prayer
Lord, I pray to You in this time of crisis and pain to humbly ask if You could relieve me of this burden and let me feel the weightless comfort of a body and mind without hurt. I know that I am strong, but You are without a doubt stronger and can let me live the life I’m meant to with Your assistance. If You’d relieve me of this hurt, I would be so profoundly grateful for Your help. Amen.
Forgiving to Heal Myself Prayer
Because my Father would not ever want me to hold on to past resentments or grudges, I know that in forgiving those who have wronged me I will be closer to Him and heal in the process with the weight of anger now lifted from my shoulders. From today on, I forgive people in my past who I have held vendettas against. Let this feeling of forgiveness inspire me to grow and renew my health. Amen.
I Surrender Myself to You Prayer
Dear Lord above, in my moments of weakness I pray that I will always hold steady to my faith and surrender myself to Your divine nature so that you can heal me, regrow my body and mind, and renew my spirit. This process of surrender will break down all hindrances to my healing and leave me more fulfilled than ever before so that I can properly connect to everything You’ve created on Earth for all of us. Amen.
Personal Miracles Prayer
Through the power of God, any miracle for our personal health can occur. He has the immense power in His disposal to save us from all suffering and discomfort and give us boundless joy, comfort, and appreciation for the world around us.

Nothing Stands in the Way Prayer
Between the eternal glory of God and I, nothing stands between us except what I put there.
