Prayer to let go and let God: (move on from the past)

Don’t live in the past.

Let go and let God take over your battles.

And that’s because, as Christians, there is nothing else we can do besides trusting in God.

He has promised vengeance on those that hurt us.

He has promised never to forsake us in trying times.

So, there is no need to hold grudges or remain stagnant.

Let God take control of your situation and move on to your next level in life.

Therefore, today, we are going to pray for the grace to forgive.

We will ask Him for the strength to move on from your past.

If you are struggling to let go of a past relationship, God can help you.

Likewise, it could be your hurts, anger, resentment, or hatred against someone.

Through the grace of God, you can conquer your past and your thoughts.

I have put together this prayer to let go and let God take control.

May God, take away your trials, strengthen your thoughts, and erase your painful past, amen.
