Prayer for August 12th

August 12, 2014

canyon

Hi, Friends! I’m feeling led to re-post this prayer today…

Dear Lord,

How wonderful and majestic are your works! There is none like you We are so blessed to call you our Healer, our Provider, our Savior and our Friend.

Lord, when we look at the Grand Canyon, we see the many layers in these rocks. These layers can remind us of the layers of pain and hurt we carry within us. We get through one layer, only to find another one that we need to deal with. Lord, we pray that you will strip away the layers of hurt and pain…shame and regret…fear and anxiety…rejection and longing…unhealthy, destructive thoughts and desires…and all of the unmet expectations that have piled up in our lives. We pray for cleansing and healing, Lord. We pray that as these things are stripped away and healed, that we would see your beauty shining forth from us. Just like diamonds are created under pressure, we know you are doing that same work in us, Lord. You are refining us into something of infinite worth and value in your eyes.

As we look at this picture, we also see this massive canyon that was carved out and the rocks eroded away, by something as simple as water. Lord, we know that sin left unchecked… and negative thoughts that flow through our minds, can do damage and erode and eat away at many aspects of our lives. It happens ever so subtly and sometimes, we are unaware of the damage being done until it’s too late. Help us Lord to be perceptive. Keep us from being complacent. Help us to remove the things in our lives that seem harmless, but over time do damage and take bits and pieces of us away that we can’t get back. Help us to overcome, Lord. Please impart your wisdom and knowledge to us. Make us sensitive to your voice and guiding hand, so we might change the things that need to be changed in our lives.

Lord, we are not gathered here by accident, but by divine appointment. You are longing for us to find hope, renewed faith and healing. You are longing to change us from battle weary warriors to overcoming conquerors. You are trying to lovingly take away the stumbling blocks in our lives that keep us from intimately knowing you. Lord, help us trust you for our healing. Help us trust you for our needs. We give you this day and commit it to your hands. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Blessings, hugs and love to you all!

Debbie
