Default Prayers for solution to lingering problem

For years I've struggled with a serious problem, which was compounded by some bad decisions on my part. I've done my best to clean up my part but the problem remains. This year, it has become much more intense; in the past few months, it's also become much more unstable. I'm hoping this means that it's at a point where we (God and I) can finally bring this to a resolution, instead of it continuing to fester. It is definitely reaching a crisis point. There is a solution that would fix this, and it totally relies on God (not something I can work to make happen). I really really want it to go that way, and I'm afraid I'm focusing too much on that solution and maybe missing something else God is trying to say.

So, I would really appreciate prayers that I let go of my attachment to the solution I see and want, that I hear everything God wants to tell me about this entire situation, and that we achieve a positive resolution! Thank you so much!

What came to mind was a prayer my sister wrote. She had learning disabilities and doesn't always communicate well with others so I was blown away by her prayer.

Oh Jesus, come more deeply into my life,
Constantly strengthen my trust and faith.
Pour out your graces abundantly in me.
I hunger for your great love and peace,
And need you more and more each day.

Wipe away the tears of frustration,
Help me not to be too disappointed
When things don’t go as they should.
Shield me from the force of storms,
Don’t let me be so shaken by them.

Help me to hide my pain from others,
And to be strength to others I meet.
Show me how to pray more earnestly.
Teach me silent humble ways of speaking.
Let your teachings show in my actions.

May my life be a prayer for you?
Let your light shine out from me.
Thank you for all your help already.
Thank you for the peace you are,
And for the many joys you give to me.

This reminds me of something. When we go to Confession we are forgiven of our sins but the temporal punishment remains. Whatever this is seems to be the temporary punishment for your sins. Offer it up as penance. I'm studying to be a priest and I keep the sins of others under a seal (unless they allow me to tell.) kind of like the sacramental seal of confession. If you need further advice then feel free to PM me. Will be praying for you. God love you

Loving God please make a new path for sungirl

“No need to recall the past,
no need to think about what was before.
See I am doing a new deed,
even now, it comes to light; can you not see it?
Yes, I am making a road in the wilderness,
paths in the wild.”[Isaiah 43:18-19]


Harvest

Beloved Jesus—from the compost of my sins, failures, faults and omissions please enrich the soil that nurtures the harvest that You prepare of my being and life—for Your delight, and for others’ benefit.
From the flower and fruit of all grace and good sprung from You within me, please bountifully glorify Yourself and bless all whose lives touch mine!

Almighty and loving Father,
I thank you for giving St. Gerard to us
as a most appealing model and powerful friend.
By his example,
he showed us how to love and trust You.
You have showered many blessings
on those who call upon him.
For Your greater glory and my welfare,
please grant me the favors
which I ask in his name.

guide sungirl to a final resolution

And you, my powerful patron,
intercede for me before the throne of God.
Draw near to that throne
and do not leave it until you have been heard.
O good saint, to you I address my feverent prayers;
graciously accept them and let me experience in
some way the effects of your powerful intercession.

Amen.

Heavenly Father,

Please show Your will to this faithful daughter at a time when she is quiet and more inclined to hear You. She is asking for Your guidance in this situation and wants nothing more than to carry out the work that You set before her. Please send the Holy Spirit down to be with her and calm her fears so that she will be calm and more receptive to You. I ask this in the name of Your most precious son, Jesus.

Thank you so much for the prayers and the helpful thoughts (and thank you for sharing that special prayer, Trishie; it is beautiful). Some new developments yesterday mean that it's now officially a crisis, so I REALLY appreciate the prayers!
