Prayer for July 22nd

July 22, 2014

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Our Father,

We gather today with heavy hearts. Our hearts grieve with those who grieve…and we mourn with those who mourn. Father, we ask that you touch each life that has been affected by natural disasters, by war, and by tragedy. We pray for all the families that are grieving the loss of their loved ones…we think of the plane crash victims and all the pain and confusion and all the things that are wrong in just recovering their bodies. We think of the terror that the displaced from storms and fighting and war are experiencing..

As we look at  pictures and hear stories, it’s hard not to think of your follower Job…He lost all of his children, his home, his possessions, his wealth and his health, all in one fell swoop…yet he remained steadfast in his faith…we can’t help but believe, that his story of suffering and unwavering faith in your goodness, was an example for times such as these…we can’t help but think, that his story is for those who in the blink of an eye, lose everything and wonder how they are supposed to carry on…

Father, we stand in the gap today and we pray for all who are feeling weary, broken and hopeless. We stand in the gap and we lift up all who are struggling to find you in the midst of such suffering, tragedy and loss. Father, we pray for your comfort…we pray that you will show yourself in ways they’ve never known before…May they come to understand that you do not cause these disasters…these tragedies come with living in a fallen world…when people wonder where you were in the midst of these things…may they come to realize that you were there in their midst and by their side… comforting the scared…you were there, covering many under the shadow of your wing… and you were there kissing the faces of children as they took their last breath here and opened their eyes to see your face in Paradise… Father, we ask for you to pour down your grace and mercy upon the hurting and may they find hope in you to carry on…please give them strength for all that lies ahead and may they be showered with the kindness of strangers who are moved with compassion to minister and serve those who have lost so much.

Father, when our hearts are overwhelmed, lead us to the rock that is higher than us or anything we may face…you are our refuge…our comfort, our provider and our healer…this world is so in need of you, Lord. There is so much suffering, but we know this is just temporary…this is not our home and we are just passing through. We can survive without everything but you, Our Father…tragedies always remind us of what is important…what is lasting and true. Help us to not lay up treasures here where they can be destroyed in a blink of an eye…help us to treasure things like family and friends and most of all our relationship with you. Help us have a loose grip on things of this world and a tight grip on you, Father.

Father, we ask for you to meet the needs of each person that is seeking you and your help. Please do what only you can do … redeem … restore … renew … comfort … bring peace … give hope. Help us to seize the day and make things right in relationships that need healing… Help us to take nothing for granted… and may we make the most of this life that you’ve given us…In the name of Jesus, we thank you and ask these things. Amen.

May the God of peace, fill you with His peace!
Much love in Him,
Debbie
