Prayer for January 16th

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Our Father,

We ask today that you would help us to delight in you. If we are honest, at times…especially when things are difficult, we can find it hard to even hold on to faith, let alone to find delight in you…Father, help us to see you… to feel you… and to find joy in you… even in the midst of our deepest sorrows or most stressful times. Help us to see your light breaking through the clouds of darkness and despair. Help us to have a glimpse of heaven in the midst of what at times, can feel like a living hell.

Father, we need you…we are helpless and hopeless without you. Losing those we love is not easy Lord, but sometimes, that’s not even the part that is the most difficult…we know that when those who love you die, they find freedom, healing, peace and joy…and that is comforting…but it is the suffering that so many deal with before dying,..that is what can be so hard to bear…it weighs heavy on us Lord, when we see those we love in pain, turmoil or agony…we know you grieve as well, Lord. You did not create illness, suffering and death…that wasn’t your plan for us…you are crying right beside us and wiping our tears.

Father, we ask for your comfort for those who we love who are suffering … whether physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. Please, may they feel your presence and we ask Lord, God in the name of Jesus, to give them relief … whatever way you choose to do that, Lord…you know what is best…we pray for your mercy and grace to rain down upon them and your healing hand to touch them.

Lord, help us to keep our eyes on you and not on the things that we can’t control. Help us to reach out to you as our life-preserver when we feel like we are drowning in sorrow…be our refuge and our strength and help us rise above all that would see us sink and give up… Father, please do in us, what we can’t do alone…Help us to be an encouragement to those we love and show us how to comfort other with your comfort and love.

Help us to find rest in you as we trust those we love and all the circumstances that are beyond our control, into your hands. Perhaps our delight doesn’t always shout and dance, Lord … perhaps sometimes are delight is just gratefulness that we have a Savior that stands beside us through thick and thin and even carries us when we are too weak to move on our own…perhaps, sometimes… delight comes in the form of a sigh…and not a shout of joy… perhaps, sometimes… our delight is the feeling deep within, that we are loved more than we can comprehend by Someone that gave all, so we could live…perhaps for today, our delight can be our prayer of thankfulness that you are our Lord. We give you everything we are and everything we hope to be Lord and we commit those we love to your hands. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen

Blessings be upon you and all you love!
Much love in Him,
Debbie
