A Spiritual Prayer For Self Forgiveness - release from unhelpful guilt
I feel bad about feeling/doing________ (fill in the blank).
Sometimes I feel I will never get it right.
But my feeling of guilt is not helping. In fact, it is making things worse.
Feeling wrong is so unpleasant that I may even try to find someone else to blame.
I feel like I am doing my best.
But, I believe, with your help, I can do better.
There must be a better way.
Feeling/doing________ is affecting my sense of worth.
Feeling/doing________ is affecting someone I care about.
I can't do this on my own.
I am beginning to realise that I don't need to;
that the humility you need is this realisation that I can't do it on my own.
Dear God, help me.
Give me an understanding that I am not this body that does things in the world, but part of your unending Love.
Allow me to see the beauty that you see in me.
Allow me to understand that since you created me Innocent and part of You, then that is what I am.
This feeling of guilt has brought me to you, so I am grateful for it.
locate the feeling of guilt in my body. I replace it with a feeling of quiet
I hand this over to you, God.
When I find myself feeling/doing________, I remember that you are working in me to bring change.
I am not on my own with this.
Thank you God.
You are a big God, and this problem is small for you.
I place myself in your hands.
Thank you for the peace you bring to my heart.
May I be blessed and be a blessing.
Thank you so much for praying this prayer for forgiveness.
Forgiving yourself is so important.
When you don't forgive yourself you are unlikely to forgive others.
When you don't forgive yourself you are are depriving yourself of the experience of God's love.
You may be trying to be a better person by punishing yourself. But actually you are blocking a source of Love that will allow you to be all you can be.
Let that source of Love flow into your life.
Let that Love overflow into the lives of others.
Forgive yourself. And then, if you need to say sorry to someone else, go and do it!
