Prayer: 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.

Let Us Pray

Dear Lord, thank You for Your Word which is a lamp unto my feet. I am so grateful  for Your Word, which is Spirit and life to me. I know that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Ephesians 4:31. Put aside all bitterness, losing your temper, anger, shouting, and slander, along with every other evil.

Philippians 4:6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.

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.

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.

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.

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.

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.
