Prayer for Moving On

Dear Lord, as the year draws to a close, I pray to find closure in some areas of my life, so that I may move on. Some are grudges, pain, and even my own mistakes. There's grief and sorrow that will remain for a long time. But help me remember that trials help build perseverance and character in me -please change me for the better. Only good abides in You, Lord. You can turn even an evil situation into a good one, just as You intervened in Joseph's life when he was sold off by his jealous brothers. (Genesis 50:20) How awesome is my God! I need more faith that goodness will prevail and that You will surely open new, better doors for me. I put my future in Your hands; You are my Deliverer. In Jesus' name, Amen.
