Prayer for August 17th

August 17, 2014


Hello Friends! Here is today’s prayer…


Dear Heavenly Father,

Some days, when we come to you, we just have such heavy hearts. We see all who are suffering around us and we know we are helpless to do anything to ease their pain or to help their desperate  situations. We are reminded  when we see all that is wrong in the world…  when we see all the people who are evil, cruel, hurtful and  dishonest, that we live in a sinful, fallen world. On these hard days, Lord, we think of how you wept. Surely, your heart must grieve every day over the sin, hurt, pain and suffering that exists here. On the tough days, Lord, what a comfort it is to know, that you understand our feelings, cares and concerns. We thank you for all you’ve done for us, o  even in our sadness, we can rejoice, because we know that better things await us.

Lord, for everyone that is having a hard time today… for whatever reason…we ask that you would just envelop them with your Holy Spirit and your loving embrace. May they feel a heavenly cocoon of warmth and love surround them. May they picture you cradling them, hugging them and reassuring them, that everything will be okay. Lord, sometimes, we just have to let the dam burst and let the tears fall and flush the hurts from our system. Perhaps you allow these times, Lord, just so we can fall into your arms and know that you are The One, that catches us when we fall …you are The One, that holds us up when we are weak and you are The One, that carries us when we are just too bruised and battle weary to even move. You are, our serenity and peace… our safe harbor and refuge.

Lord, help us to make the time to rest at your feet. In the stillness and in solitude of this prayer time, may we be ministered to by you. Help us to envision a safe place where we can go to be surrounded by your warmth, joy, peace and love. Lord, please, refresh us. Please give us relief from the battles of life. Please, gather to yourself, all that are worn down from constant pain and illness. Lord, you promise to give rest to the weary and so we are claiming that promise today. We thank you for your compassion, love and mercy for us, Lord….we would be so lost and hopeless without you! In the name of Jesus we ask all these things Amen

May you have a blessed and peaceful day!

Much love in Him,

      Thank you Renee! I’m sorry they’ve been hit and miss for awhile now. When that happens it’s because there is stuff going on in my life… usually with my health or my son and it’s hard to keep up with everything. Hoping I’ll be more consistent for awhile 🙂 Blessings and hugs to you!
