O God, you know better than anyone else that I am not perfect. You also know that I am afraid to make a commitment to love you and to love others. You know that because I am afraid I act in ways that drive others away. Yet, how I ache to be loved! How I yearn to feel the closeness of your Spirit and the connection to another human being. Will you help me let go of my fear long enough to begin loving again?
I am asking you because I am slowly dying, my spirit is withering, I need help. Bring me healing through your Spirit. I do not ask this because I deserve your love, but because I do believe, deep in my heart, that your nature is one of unconditional love. Hear my prayer, dear God. My life depends upon it.
