Prayer For April 1st

April 1, 2015

peaceful

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

Sometimes it’s just hard to get through the day… there are so many responsibilities and it can be hard to have the energy or resources to complete what needs to get done. So many, go to bed at night feeling like they’ve done their best, but it just wasn’t good enough. The things they need to do just keep piling up and at times there seems no relief in sight. Lord, we lift up to you everyone who is feeling those things now… please help all who are in that place of physical, emotional and mental exhaustion… for those whose bodies are failing and betraying them…for all those who are in pain or deal with disabilities that leave them feeling exhausted beyond what most people could imagine or understand… For those who struggle to do the most basic of daily tasks that come so easily and naturally for most… We know you are there in the midst of each of our circumstances, Lord…Teach each of us how to not be overwhelmed and how to let you carry our burdens.. Teach us how to accept that our best is all we can do…it’s all we can expect from anyone, including ourselves… help us to rise up with wings as eagles, so we can run the race before us and not grow weary…

As times get harder and more people are in need, we need to be as the church was in the days of old. We need to not isolate ourselves… we need to be part of a community…we need to embrace each other and love each other as ourselves… we need to share each others burdens and pain and encourage each other to press in and hold on to Jesus.
Lord,  for those who are alone, please send  people  to come stand beside them… send them people who have compassion and understanding and who will stand in the gap , pray and lend tangible support…we all need to feel we have a purpose and that we are useful and there are many here that don’t feel they are needed…they feel like no one would miss them if they were gone, or that the world would be better off without them…Lord, for anyone who is feeling those things, please help them to see your truth and to rebuke the lies from the enemy… help each of us to hear your voice above all else…help us to find rest in you and please renew our strength. Lord, please pour your Holy Spirit out upon us. Please help us remember there is power in the blood of Christ…
We all face battles, but the victory has already been won…help us  to live our lives in light of that truth… we cling to you one day at a time, Lord…today, we give you our lives…we give you our needs…we give you our pain, hurt, fatigue and misplaced feelings and emotions and we say “take it all, Lord and draw us close to you today”. In the name of Jesus  we pray, Amen

Blessings be upon you!
In Him,
Debbie
