Prayer For December 2nd

December 2, 2014

Hi, Friends! I’m feeling led to re-post this prayer. I think there are some people who need it today…

Dear Lord,

We pray for those who are sad or depressed…for those who view happiness and joy as this allusive, golden place that they will never reach. Many feel like they will be stuck in the darkness and never be able to move forward and rise above the pain. There are some who feel that the path to joy and happiness is not for them, but only for some privileged, special few. Some are  struggling  financially. Many who live under hard, difficult circumstances, feel like they will always be stuck in the valley below the proverbial house on the hill,  whose inhabitants have a seemingly blessed life. Many feel like a good life is beyond their grasp and they wonder why they are still here.

Lord, we pray for all who are so discouraged that they have given up on their dreams. We pray for those who have given up on faith. We pray for those who have given up on believing that there is anything good for them in this life. May they find renewed strength and vision. Help them to remember that you are always beside them, leading them through the dark valleys and beside the still waters and that you will restore their souls and you are working all things together for good for those who love you.

We may not live in a mansion or castle like this in our lifetime, but we have waiting for us a place that you have specifically made for us. You tell us no one has seen, or even imagined what awaits us. Lord, depending on our perspective, we can find hope… or we can see impossibilities. We can see a glimpse of what awaits for each one of us…both in this life and the life to come, if we look past the problems and limitations, to you.  Help us to adjust our attitudes so we will focus on the possibilities, the positives and the promises that you give us to be our strength, our rest and our provider.

Help us to not give up or get discouraged, or to think that good things are only for others… That doesn’t mean that we  will  have wealth, good health and no troubles in this life…but you have answers for prayers that have yet to be prayed and spiritual gifts that the world can’t give or take a way. You have a plan and a purpose for each of us and you long to give good gifts to your children.

We pray that we won’t become defeated by our thoughts. We pray that we will find the will to fight and persevere and keep picking ourselves up when we fall. May we grow strong with your power and might so we don’t give up in the valley.  Our lessons are learned in the valleys…but one day we will be with you and what is coming will be more spectacular than this picture or anything we can imagine. We thank you Lord, for all that awaits. We thank you for your love and your sacrifice  which makes everything possible for us. With hopeful expectation and gratitude we pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.

May you feel His nearness today!
In His love,
Debbie

    Loved your prayer and honestly sometimes I fall into the trap of thinking good things are not for us. And then I remember the enemy is the one who wants me to believe this. I appreciate your prayers, Debbie. Thank you.
