Prayer for September 24th

September 24, 2014

hope for the broken hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today..

Our Father,

As we gather today, we pray for anyone that is feeling incomplete…like something, or someone is missing from their life. Father, you do promise to heal our broken hearts and to bind our wounds, but we often feel the absence in our lives of those whom we have loved and lost…we feel the loss on special dates and holidays … or we are reminded of how life used to be during certain times of the year, or sometimes even when we are enjoying life… we think about how our missing loved one would make that moment feel perfect and complete.

Father, when we get to heaven there are many things that we won’t have…like tears, death, suffering, and loss…but there is something important that we will have… a sense of completeness. We will be made whole in your presence…but we will also feel a sense of completeness as we are reunited with our loved ones who have gone before us…and we will never be separated again. We will feel no emptiness or feeling like part of us is missing. We will be in every way, who and what we were created to be…not lacking anything. There is so much to look forward to. May this thought give everyone a sense of hope, peace and comfort today…

Father, we lift up to you all who are missing loved ones because they have passed away…all who are divorced or widowed and missing what used to be …all parents who have lost a child…all who are estranged from family members, or friends for any reason… all who have never had the love, approval or blessing from their parents that they have longed for… all who are feeling the loss of their loved ones because of incarceration…all who are separated from those they love because of military service, or having to work far from home…for the parents who have children not living with them…for those who are dealing with things like dementia and Alzheimer’s and they miss the person who used to be… we lift anyone else that might be feeling the loss of someone important from their life…Father, for each person who is hurting today, we pray for your comforting arms to enfold them. We ask that you would turn their mourning to joy….we ask that you would take away the feelings of emptiness and longing. May they find joy in happy memories and may they cling to you as you continually do your healing work in their lives.

For those who are single and long to be married, we pray that if you have someone for them, that you would prepare them for their future mate and their future mate for them. Bring the right person into their life at the right moment, Father… help them not to be impatient, but to wait for your best and your perfect timing. Help each of us Lord, no matter what our circumstances or situation, to find our identity, our worth, our sense of self and our purpose in who we are as your child. Help everyone who might be feeling “less than” or inadequate because of their circumstances … Help them not to judge or compare their life to others…Help us all to remember we are right where you want us to be…that we are fearfully and wonderfully made….and that you have a good plan for each of our lives and it’s a plan to give us hope and a future…You want the best for each of us and you will faithfully make that happen in your timing. Help us to realize that part of the longing and ache in our heart is there simply because this world is not our home…and we were not meant to be satisfied by this world or the things in it. Only you can truly fill the void that we all feel sometimes …only you can truly make us feel whole, complete and content, no matter who we are with, or where we are at.

Father, please meet each need, spoken and unspoken and may we be filled to overflowing with your joy today and the knowledge that you love us just as we are and that you take delight in us…not because of what we have or haven’t done, but because of who you are. We love you Lord and we thank you for what you are doing in each of our lives. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen

Blessings be upon you!

Much love in Him,
Debbie

    I’m still processing everything included in Sept 24th’s Prayer for the Brokenhearted and your response to me. In sum, everything that is, was and can go wrong and that does, has or will affect us both today. But in the midst of it all, God whispers, Wait for it. It comes and will be everything you never even dreamed about.

    So, Debbie, in short, I know that nothing is ever wasted in the Lord’s world. As small and minute as I may be, God is working in me to use my pain for His glory. And I will not consider the things to great for me to comprehend. I will rest in my faith. Sound like healing? Maybe I am.

    Thank you and God Bless You my sister in Christ Jesus,
    Teresa

      Sounds like healing Teresa 😉 …Praying for you my friend. Yes, God gives beyond what we could imagine…especially in our times of loss and grief…in my wildest dreams or imaginings I could never have imagined this world wide ministry, or the doors God opened or the path He has placed me on. He is full of wonderful surprises… trusting and waiting…so hard to do, but so worth it! Love you!
