Dear God, Please Give Me Strength To Let Go Of What’s Not Mine

My God,

Please, I pray, give me the courage to let go of people who no longer have a place in my life. Protect me from relationships that make me attached to people who will soon walk out of my life and leave me broken and feeling dejected.

It's not my place to question your mysterious ways, oh God. And I hope I am not because all I want is that you make life a little easier for me.

And so, take from me any desire that makes me want something that’s not mine. Give me the strength to let go of anyone who has no place in my life.

Protect my heart from people who will make me fall so hard for them only for them to leave.

This has been a weakness of mine of late. It is like a bad omen that trails me wherever I go.

I pray that you make it stop.

What I desire is someone who will be good enough for me. Someone who will be there for me in all possible ways.

My hope has been seriously shaken, but I hope that this dream will be my reality in the future. Send me someone who will be good for me and treat me right.

I know what my problem is – I get attached to the wrong people too easily. I have paid the price for this mistake again and again. I am always reeling from the effects of these relationships. I keep falling for the wrong person.

I have no idea why I have this misplaced notion that I can have something that is not mine. Help me overcome this temptation. I believe you will make this happen. Just lead the way and I will follow.

Lead me to people who bring joy, love, and peace of mind in my life. Keep me away from those who have no good intentions for me. Help me get rid of people who might eventually hurt me.

Give me the conviction to know who belongs and who doesn’t.

Open my eyes so that I can see toxic people for who they are so that I don’t give them a place in my life. Let me understand my true worth.

Sure, my faith has been shaken. But I know and believe that you will guide me along the right paths so that I can find loving and fulfilling relationships that reaffirm my faith in you.

Oh Lord, I pray, don’t let me fall into challenges I cannot overcome.

Give me a mind that forgets all the past hurts, that they might not get in the way of me finding the people who deserve a place in my life according to your divine plan. Help me see how much better I could be without these people in my lives.

I am aware that I might not get the answer to all my prayers in an instant, if at all. If that is the case, then give me the strength and the perseverance to handle whatever comes my way.

Help me guard my heart against hurt by loving people who are also genuine about their love for me. All I long for is your blessings. I don’t want to hold on to anything that is not mine.

Help me guard my heart against hurt by loving people who are also genuine about their love for me. All I long for is your blessings. I don’t want to hold on to anything that is not mine.

Don’t let me long or latch onto anything that does not belong to me.

Also, always give me a sign that some people have no future in my life. I promise that I will wait for as long as it takes.

In the end, only you, God, knows what is good for me. You know what is right for me and I know you will bring it to pass.
