Prayer For March 17th

March 17, 2015

St. Patrick's Day prayer

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Our Father,

On this day we call St. Patrick’s Day, many fail to think about the spiritual things this day represents…this day celebrates how you redeem the things the enemy has meant for harm…it is a reminder that one person who is committed to you, truly can change the world.

When Patrick was kidnapped and sold into slavery, he could have become angry and bitter, but he turned to you and found you in the midst of his suffering and servitude. He used his time in captivity, to fellowship with you and to learn to hear your voice. When the time came, you spoke to Him and showed Him a way of escape. Most people would have fled, and never looked back. But Patrick felt you calling him to go back to spread the gospel message to the very people who enslaved him…he recognized that they were lost in their sin and didn’t know about you. He lived out your instructions to “pray for those who persecute you” and an entire country came to know of your saving grace because he was obedient and didn’t let pain, bitterness or unforgiveness, get in the way of what you called him to do.

Lord, there are so many of us who deal with things that are unfair, wrong and hurtful… may we all find healing and courage in you.. May we learn to forgive as Christ did. May we allow your love to change us so to the point that we pray for those who come against us. May we find the courage to say, “Here I am Lord, use me…let your will, not mine be done.”

Father, as people focus on the secular symbols and traditions of this holiday, may we ponder the deeper truths behind this day… may we weigh them in our heart’s and use Patrick’s example to know that healing is possible… forgiveness is possible … extraordinary things are possible, if we only have faith and trust in you.

Father, please pour your healing balm upon all who are hurting this day. Please draw us all close to you. Thank you, Lord for your grace and mercy. In the name our Savior, Jesus, we pray. Amen

May God’s blessings and favor be upon you!
Much love in Him,
Debbie Kay
