My Personal Life Do-Over Prayer

Dear Father,

I thank you God that you allow do-overs because you love me and made me.  I want to start out my new life believing that you are here with me and that you care.  Help me to really feel personally what it says in John 3:16 and 17.    Help me to know that You so loved me that You gave your one and only Son Jesus that when I believe in him, I will not be destroyed but will have eternal life.   Help me to know that You  did not send Jesus into the world to condemn me, but to save me through him.  Sometimes I find this hard to grasp.  Here are some of the questions and difficulties I have feeling that you love and care for me right now…..

I can believe that you love people in general, but sometimes it’s harder for me to believe that you love me personally.  As I listen in prayer right now, bring something specific to my mind that you like about me…

I know that there are things that I have done to get my life to a place where I need a do-over.  Here are some of the mistakes I’ve made that I wish now I hadn’t made….

Help me to believe that the words in the Bible apply to me when it says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”  (The first letter of John chapter 1 verse 9)

I have to admit that I still have issues about controlling my unhealthy habits and behavior and thinking patterns.  Here are the ones I really need help with to start my new life…

As I start my new life, I hope I’m getting not only older but wiser too.  Here are some of the new ways I’m starting to think about my life that give me hope…

I have a really big empty place in my heart right now because of ________________ that I’ve lost.  I am in need of a miracle today to help me overcome the wasted opportunities of my life.  Here is the specific miracle that I need…

I know I can’t make this miracle happen on my own.  Here is the specific help I need from you today…

I want to learn more about You so I can have the strength and guidance for my new life.  Here are the specific ways I’m going to try and get closer to you…

I thank you that you say in the Bible, “If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.”  (The second letter to the Corinthians chapter 5 verse 17)  Help me feel new.  Help me act new.  Help me think in new ways.  Help me to love others like I have never been able to love them before.  I thank you, Jesus, for this wonderful gift of this do-over in my life.  I am ready for my fresh start!  Amen
