Prayer for January 30th

January 30, 2014

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,As we gather today, many are dealing with disappointments with family and friends. Many have found that in their times of need, those they thought they could depend on are not there to help as they thought they would be. For some, the disappointments and sadness, have been replaced with resentment and anger… Lord, we know you are in control of all things. This happens to so many and so often… and it compounds the grief and losses that they are already dealing with. But you are sovereign, Lord…you knew these things would happen and you will not waste this pain in any life….you will use it for our good to draw us closer to yourself…to allow us to see your provision for things, that we thought others would help us with. When these situations happen, they show us and remind us, that people will always let us down, but you never will….and you use these circumstances to teach us about grace, Lord.

There are many reasons for people not being there in a time of need, but whatever the reason…the answer for us is always the same…we are all imperfect people, in a need of a Savior and we must pray for each other and forgive each other… just as you do for us. We must grieve our hurts and our losses and pray for your help to heal from our wounds… and we must also pray to love with your love, those who hurt us. We are to pray for a heart that is patient, kind and forgiving… even when people do not live up to their promises or responsibilities.

The enemy is looking to kick us when we are down. He is looking to heap things on us so we will turn from you and pull away from church or other believers…he wants to isolate us and make us distrustful, upset and angry. But what he has meant for our harm and to make us feel alone, you use to make us more aware of your presence. You can use this to make us more dependent on you, instead of others. You use these things to make us more like Jesus…because if there was ever anyone who understands about being let down and disappointed and hurt by people, it is you, Lord. You have suffered these things more than any other…yet, you have compassion for us and for the people who do such things…that is how you could say on the cross, “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do”.

Father, for those who are hurting today give them a fresh perspective. Fill their hearts with your love…your compassion … your patience … and your grace. For those who are needing physical, tangible help in their lives, we ask that you will send people to come stand beside them and be your hands and feet…for those who need a place to stay, please provide…for those who need a friend in the midst of their loneliness, we thank you for being there so we are never truly alone… but please send someone to those who need to feel a human touch…for those who have been left high and dry or who are now left dealing with problems that are not of their own doing…please make a way where there seems to be no way, Lord.

Father, please meet each need…spoken and unspoken…and help us all Lord, not to dwell on the things of this world, but help us to focus on You… The One that heals our hurts, dries our tears and helps us to do what we could never do on our own. May your light shine in us and through us Lord. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen

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

    Thank you for this word. Our 27 yr old son committed suicide December 28th, 2012. This year was our first Christmas without him. My husbands family virtually just ignored the reality of him being gone, expecting me to carry on, happy face, don’t ruin anyone else’s day. I left hurt, confused and completely blown away by their apparent lack of sensitivity. The Lord gave me this scripture the next morning. Psalm 27:7 “some trust in chariots and horses, but we trust in the name of The Lord our God.” He showed me that we can never trust and hope in man. They will always let us down. I didn’t realize until I read this prayer that I was still holding onto unforgiveness. I have pulled away, purposely isolated myself from them. Protection of my still hurting heart I’m sure. Thank you. Your post daily speak to me, ministering to my heart in a very real way.

    Thank you for these words. I was just saying to my family today as we are going through some uncertain times of poor health for my wife that the Lord is wanting to make sure we rely on Him more than we rely on one another. I am so grateful for so many loved ones that do life with me, but the “greater thing” is to sit at the feet of Jesus and truly receive His presence at work in me/us. May every one who reads and hears this prayer take to heart it’s words. God’s fullness back to you Debbie
