A Prayer to Let Go and Move On

Lord, I commit my failures as well as my successes into your hands, and I bring
for your healing the people and the situations, the wrongs and the hurts of the past.

Give me courage, strength and generosity to let go and move on,
leaving the past behind me, and living the present to the full.

Lead me always to be positive as I entrust the past to your mercy,
the present to your love, and the future to your providence.

... a prayer of St Augustine

  1. Perfect prayer of relinquishment.
    If I would learn to hold my "things " with open hands it wouldn't be so difficult to let go and move on.
    Sometimes I let go and move on only to make a return trip and have to go through the whole thing again.
    God is good and I just keep moving on.

  2. Bob, that is really a prayer for all of us....It takes courage, humility and honesty to pray that prayer.
