Prayer To Get Better, Not Bitter

We all experience undesirable situations: offenses, disappointments, rejections, failures and the loss of loved ones. But when things come crushing down, when life seems to worsen, when people try to hurt, disappoint or reject you, get better, not bitter.

Do not let circumstances dictate how you feel. Yes, you can grieve or feel bad for a moment, but don’t stay down. Get back up. Dust yourself. Choose joy in the midst of challenges. Get better. Learn from it and bounce back even better.

John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”

Why be joyful? Because God’s love  for you is consistent. He loves you the same through it all. His love for you is unconditional  and everlasting. He is always with you in all your troubles.

He says, when you go through the waters of hurt and loss, HE will be with you. When you go through the rivers of hopelessness, they will not sweep over you. When you go through the fire of rejection and failure, you will not be burnt, and the flames will not scorch you.

Isaiah 43:2. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.

Prayer To Get Better, Not Bitter

Dear Heavenly Father, I approach Your throne of grace and mercy today with a heart that desires to get better, not bitter. Life’s challenges and trials often seem unending, and the pain and hurt I’ve experienced often make me feel inclined toward bitterness. But I know that such an attitude does not reflect the Christlike spirit You desire in me.

Today, I am reaching out to You, pleading for the grace to become better and not bitter. It is a journey that I acknowledge I cannot walk alone. I need Your guidance, Your strength, and Your wisdom. I need Your love to overflow in me, that I may see beyond the pain and disappointments, that I may learn from them and grow.

Hebrews 12:15  Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.

Choosing Forgiveness And Love

Lord, bitterness often takes root when I hold on to hurt, resentment, and anger. Help me to choose forgiveness, as You have forgiven me. Let Your love rule in my heart that I may love as You have loved me, unconditionally and without reservation. Replace the bitterness in my heart with Your all-encompassing love.

Give me the ability to see the good in people, even those who have hurt me. May I love them with Your love and forgive as You have forgiven me. Strengthen me to release all past hurts and offenses to You, for only in You can true healing be found.

Growing In Grace And Wisdom

Heavenly Father, as I strive to get better, grant me the grace to grow in wisdom and understanding. I pray that You would transform my trials into learning experiences that make me stronger and more like Your Son, Jesus Christ.

Help me to see beyond the pain, to understand that every experience is part of Your divine plan for my growth. May I not waste my sufferings, but use them as stepping stones to a deeper understanding of Your ways and a closer walk with You.

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

Romans 5:3-4 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Getting Rid Of Bitterness

Oh Lord, there are things I’ve gone through and experienced, that make me want to stay away and be bitter.

But, your word tells me that I should get rid of all bitterness and anger. Lord, It has not been easy, but today, I trust in You to help me overcome. I will not lean on my own understanding.

Romans 12:21. Do not let evil defeat you; instead, conquer evil with good.

Overcoming And Getting Better

Heavenly Father,  take all my pain, my grief, my hurt and my disappointment. Give me strength to conquer. Help me to get better, not bitter.

May I learn from my circumstances and past experiences, and become better. Let me learn patience, endurance, forgiveness, humility, kindness and contentment.

Give me the strength to forgive and love my offenders. Help me to get rid of any bitterness and anger. Bless me with the grace to put on the mind of Christ. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.

1 John 5:14-15 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
