Prayer for Protection In An Unsafe Place
(Cincinnnati, Ohio USA)
I'm not in a safe place in my life now, Lord. I might have provided better for myself, and I know I am here in this circumstance as the result of my own planning, my actions, and choices I have made both in seeking your will and finding my own way. You have saved me from the harshest consequences of my actions many times.
I am so very grateful for the place you have provided for me to sleep when I thought I would be homeless. I am so grateful for the gentle love I have felt when I found myself alone. I know you have been with me all along the way, and that gives me faith that you will not abandon me now. But my faith is weak now.
I blame myself for the danger in my life. I ask you once again for protection. When I thought all hope was lost, you provided for me. Help me now to live in faith and claim the hope that comes from knowing I am not alone. I cannot claim that I have done my best. Please forgive me where I have fallen short.
Let me live in your grace, and when it is time for you to take me away from the world, let it be your will and not the consequences of my failures. Please hear my prayer as I know you have heard each of the prayers written here.
