Prayer For April 6th

April 6, 2015

hope for the broken hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

During our times of questioning, help us to remember the examples  you’ve given us… help us remember the times when you allowed something to happen so you could show your power… times like when you awoke in the midst of that storm with waves filling the boat and with one word, you stopped the wind and calmed the waves…. your followers were filled with awe and wonder. They saw first hand how much power you wield that even the winds and the waves obey you…sometimes you allow things to happen so you can strengthen our faith and show us your power and to also give us an example of how we should act and react…you were not rattled…who could sleep through a storm?…you could…you had perfect peace…no fear…you were in control…and you call us to remember this no matter what we face…you are with us…no matter how bleak things look, you are the master that everything must obey…you speak peace into the storms in our lives…you are always in control and you want us to trust that you will lead us safely to the shore.

Your disciples met much adversity and many times they thought they would not survive, but you delivered them from things like a pot of boiling oil, releasing them from prison,  shipwrecks and some survived being stoned… in each circumstance their faith and trust grew because they saw you were the God of the impossible…they learned that things aren’t over until you say they are over… they learned that you have a good and perfect plan for each of us and you will see us through to complete it…they learned you can do what no one else can do and they learned to have peace in the storms, because you earned their trust as they saw your faithfulness through each storm, difficulty and crisis.

Father, we don’t want to disappoint you…we don’t want to hear you whisper, “oh, you, of little faith.” We want to have such deep abiding faith and trust in you that we can go to sleep at night and sleep soundly, regardless of what’s going on in our lives, because we know that you are awake and in control. We want to be able to confidently say, as it says in Psalm 23, “I will fear no evil for you are with me”.

Thank you, Lord, for being our refuge and our rock on which we can stand. How humbled we are Lord, to think that the Creator of all, The One who commands the winds and the waves and The One who spoke everything into existence, knows us by name and loves us with an everlasting love. We are grateful, Lord and so thankful for your patience with us. Please go before us this day. Lead and guide us in all that we say and do. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Blessings be upon you all!
In His love,
