Prayer For July 6th

July 6, 2015

prayer from Hope For The Broken Hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,


At times we can  feel lost and unimportant … we can feel inferior…like no one cares and that our lives don’t matter…but these are only feelings and our feelings often go against your truth… Help us to listen to your voice and to constantly be working on finding out who we are in you…may our sense of self-worth come only from what you think of us…may our faith and relationship with you be what defines us, motivates us, and guides us in all that we say and do.  May your confidence in us and your love for us, encourage us, bless us, fill us with hope and heal our hurts and wounds.

Lord, help us to not grow weary in well-doing. Help us to rise above the thoughts that say we “can’t”…the thoughts that say “we can’t go on”…”that we can’t take any more”…”the thoughts that say, “I’m too tired and I just want to go to heaven”, the thoughts that say “life shouldn’t be this hard”… nothing is impossible for those who believe and we CAN do all things through Christ’s strength…your ways are not our ways…they are so much higher than ours…your wisdom is so much greater than ours… you want our complete trust and obedience no matter what is going on in our lives…  you don’t want us to be short-sighted and only focused on things of this world… Lord, please help us to rise above self-defeating and discouraging words…help us to fix our eyes on the prize…help us to not settle for just getting by…to think that all that matters is we are going to heaven and that is good enough…help us to embrace the calling that you have placed on each of us…to serve you, to evangelize the lost…to show your love and compassion…to comfort others as you have comforted us…may pleasing you be our number one priority in life…help us to take our eyes off of ourselves…our wants…our desires…the way we think things should be…help us to seek your will in our lives…help us to live a life that’s pleasing to you regardless of what others are saying or doing around us…help us to remember that only what we do in you will last …

Sometimes we just need to stop everything and just sit in your presence and be awed by you…to be filled by you…to give praise to you for who you are….to thank you for the things you’ve done and are going to do. May our thoughts be centered on you…and as we gaze at you, the things of this world will fade away…our problems and needs fade away in the light of your glory and grace. We realize that nothing really matters but you, Lord. Be in our midst and we ask for you to speak to our hearts in new and glorious ways. Go before us, Lord. Fill us, use us, give us a renewed sense of purpose and be glorified in us. In the precious name of Jesus we pray, Amen

May His grace and favor  be upon you!
In His love,
Debbie
