#363 - My Actions Took Someone's Life
Volume 1 - Prayers to Love God

Dear Father, I don't know what to say. I took someone's life. Are You even going to hear me? Is there any hope for me? Have I committed the unforgiveable sin? Father, I don't know what to say. I want You to hear me. I want to express my guilt. I'm sorry. I'm sorry to the victim's friends and family. I'm sorry to my friends and family. Father, I lived as my own god throughout my life. I did what I wanted to do. I thought what I wanted to think. I said what I wanted to say. I got comfortable not having any boundaries. I got comfortable with no moral law that I was accountable to. Why should I care about anyone else? What was the result of my rebellious heart? One day, I felt I had the authority and justification to take someone's life. There's nothing I can do about it now. They are gone. I brought death to the many relationships this person had or could have had. I prevented the blessings they could have been to many people. I cut short the transforming work You were doing in their life. Father, I was wrong. I am guilty not just of murder but of rebellion from You. I ask that You forgive me by the grace of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the rebellion of my heart. He also died for the murders that people like me commit. I want to repent and surrender my life to You. Father, may I now give spiritual life to people by my testimony of Your grace in my life. May I prevent future murders by encouraging men and women to turn their lives over to You. May I, at the very least, give the family of the victim the knowledge their loved one's murderer is reformed. I deserve the sentence I have received. However, I thank You that You love and cherish even those who grieve the murder they committed. Amen.
