Prayer For July 16th

July 16, 2015

a prayer to find hope and healing...

 

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

As we gather together today, we ask that you would change the way we see things.  Many are struggling to have hope…many are struggling to find a purpose in their pain… many are struggling to move forward…many are struggling to hold on…please help us to see things through your eyes…your Word tells us that you give us sight…you let Balaam see the angel of the Lord that was blocking the way of his donkey…you let Elisha’s servant see your horses and chariots of fire that surrounded them…we know that you can help us change the way we see our struggles and trials…you can help us to see things through Christ’s eyes… and so we are asking for you to please renew our  minds and transform our thinking and the way we view things. Help us to see our trials and tribulations through the lens of faith…help us to see the good in the bad…to see the purpose in the pain…help us to see those who hurt us through Christ’s eyes…you tell us to love our enemies, but we can only do that with your help…some things are so hard to forgive, Lord…we think of Corrie Ten Boom and how she was asked to forgive the guard from the concentration camp she was in…she couldn’t do that on her own, but when she took the step of faith, your love flowed through her and healed her heart…you never ask us to do anything that we can’t carry out with your help…what we can’t do on our own, we can do through your power and strength…nothing shall be impossible for us, because all things are possible through Christ who strengthens us.

Lord, please help us to give to you any part of us that we are holding back, or haven’t completely surrendered to you. Jesus gave us all of Himself  so we might live, help us to die to ourselves so we can live for Him…help us to lay on your altar, all  that we are…all  that we hope to be…all of our cares…all of our hurts…all of our needs…all those we love…our shattered hearts and dreams…Lord, we ask you to take everything and make us into the people who you want us to be…do a transforming work in us, Lord so that our hearts overflow with your hope, joy and peace and so people can see Jesus’ reflection in us…help us clean out our wounds once and for all so we can find healing…help us to know you in new ways…help our love for you to deepen… please re-kindle your love in our hearts, so we can remember our first love of you and for any who don’t know you, Lord, may they come to a saving knowledge of who you are…may we live in awe of you Lord… may we never take you for granted…may we have such a reverential awe of you… We love you Lord and we thank you in advance for all you will do. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen

May you see Him and know Him, like never before!

In His love and service,
Debbie
