Prayer for August 24th

August 24, 2014

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Our Father,

How often we just rush through our days…so overworked, too preoccupied, or too sad to gaze out at the signs that you’ve placed all around to let us know that you are with us.  Today, may we make a conscious effort to let the sun set on our pain…the things that build walls between us, instead of bridges…our losses…our past…our sin…the things that our beyond our control…our dashed dreams…our perceived imperfections…our failures…our grudges…our anger…our bitterness…our frustration… our fear…our anxiety…the things people have said to hurt us…the disappointments that people have caused us…the unfulfilled longings…our shattered self-esteem and sense of self-worth.

Lord, help us to lay these things to rest. They do us no good…only harm. The enemy is working so hard to weigh us down….to keep us chained to heavy hearts…to make us think that there is no hope and that you don’t care. We know he’s wrong, but we carry around these heavy weights until we can’t see the light of day and we are blinded to your truth… we can’t see the beauty around us, we can’t see you on the horizon, or anywhere at all… Lord, we ask that you take these things from us. We ask to bind the enemy in Jesus’ name. We want to cast our cares away, so we may rise with the hope of a new day in our hearts and minds. Who the Son sets free is free indeed, may we find that place of freedom in you.

Lord, help us to stop and seek to feel your nearness today. May we be encouraged in your Word. May we sing praises to you in our hearts. Help us to remember that you are with us in our coming and our going and even in our times of rest. Father, for those who are struggling to hold on, please show them how to live… thank you for your faithfulness, Lord and for the hope we have in you. In the name above all names we pray, Amen.

Hope you have a  blessed and wonderful day friends!
Much love in Him,
Debbie Kay
