Prayer For February 23rd

February 23, 2015

burden

Hello, Friends! Here is today’s prayer…

Our Father,

As we start this week, we are reminded that we are told to pick up our cross and follow you. For many, they feel like their cross is too much to bear…but you never intended us to carry the weight by ourselves…you do not want us to collapse under the weight of our burdens…nor do you want us to run away in fear…you stand at the ready to help us carry the crosses we’ve been asked to bear in this life…

Our crosses our not designed to be easy or light…but they will become much heavier when we object and complain about the fact  we must carry one…our crosses becomes more of a burden when we become bitter and resentful, or when we begin to think that ours is heavier than others or we shouldn’t have to carry one at all. Help us to remember that your yoke is easy and you make our burdens light. When we resist and struggle, or try to do things on our own, we will always stumble along the way. Help us to focus on you this week, Lord so we can walk and not grow weary.

Father, help us remember that one day we will be trading our cross for a crown and our burdens will be lifted once and for all. Help us in this coming week, Lord to submit our will to yours. Help us to picture you walking beside us, making our burden light. You gave so much in this earthly life…endured so much, that we might live…and you keep giving to us every day… offering your peace, your strength, your joy, your love, your grace…help us to remember to seek you when we feel our load starts to get too heavy…help us to stop in our tracks and not try to go a step further without your help…help us to see our times of adversity, grief, illness and loss as a chance to spend more time with you…a time to be closer to you and to experience more of  your grace…you will not fail to help anyone who calls upon you to help carry their load…help us to learn to not take back our troubles once we turn them over to you… You stand at the ready to give us your Living Water, our Daily Bread and grace and strength for the day… you give us everything we need to finish the race before us and to finish it well…it’s up to us to receive it…help us to learn to surrender the things that weigh us down, hold us back and cloud our vision.

Thank you, Lord…for all you give…for all you do…for never giving up on us. We bow before you with humble hearts and open arms. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen

May the Lord bless you abundantly in the week ahead!

In Him,
Debbie
