How do you pray for things out of your control?

It can be so hard to pray for the things that we cannot control.

Just the other night, I tossed and turned in bed thinking of all the things that I couldn’t control and wondering what, if anything, I could do about them.

In some ways, we are forced to pray because we cannot control these things. But so many times I try to grasp at control of things even though I know I can’t.

How do you pray for things you cannot control? You must release them to the Lord – sometimes over and over again.

Acknowledge His sovereignty and goodness and proclaim this over the situation.

God has a plan, even when we cannot see it. And thank goodness for that, right?

Imagine if we were in control, the mess we’d make!

Pray to release these things that you cannot control to the Lord and He will bring you peace in them.

How can I release my pain to God?

Releasing your pain to God is going to be an ongoing process, sometimes every day, sometimes every minute.

When we have hurts deep within us, it takes time to fully release them. 

Pray often. 

Read Scripture and replace hurts with truth. 

Understand that God is with you. This can sometimes take time to truly learn and believe.

I find that writing out a prayer and Scriptures that I can use often helps.

Letting go first takes a commitment. You must choose to release your pain, your hurt, your fear to the Lord.

And then you must follow through! Don’t release it and then expect it to be gone, it will take consistent releasing!

But take heart, in time the feelings will follow and you will find true peace.
