Prayer For August 23rd

August 23, 2015

prayer from Debbie Kay, Hope For The Broken Hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We know that to you, one day is as a thousand years…time is different for you than us… but you understand us…you understand that when things are hard, time just seems to drag on and can seem impossible to endure. You understand the impatience and the discouragement we experience… you understood at times we would feel low and crushed in spirit, so you gave us your Holy Spirit to comfort us.

Lord, you say that you bind up the wounds of the brokenhearted and you comfort all who mourn … you give us a crown of beauty instead of mourning, and a garment of praise, instead of a spirit of despair….Lord, we ask for you to grant us these things according to your will and in your timing.

The Bible says that when we run into problems and trials that they are good for us… that they help us learn to be patient… and patience is something that matures us and helps us in every aspect of  our lives… it helps us to endure…everyone always jokes that we should never pray for patience because it means that we will encounter trials so we learn to be patient…you know our hearts, Lord…you know how much we can endure with your help…we always think we can endure so much less than what you know we can endure with your help…you equip us for what you call us for…you allow us to be put in situations so we must rely on your strength to see us through…Lord, you know every need…every weakness…all that we need to overcome and all that we need to change in our lives to become like Christ and we ask for your help in every area of our lives so we can become the people you want us to be…

Please fill us to overflowing with your Spirit, Lord…wash away the despair and replace it with your joy. Revive the weary…restore what the enemy has devoured… give us this day a steady dose of optimism and enthusiasm for what our future holds. We may not know what the future holds, but we know you hold the future and our lives in your hand… we know you see the beginning from end and you are working a masterpiece from the shards of our broken lives. You do not give us empty words as promises. Thank you, for your infinite love and provision for us and we will listen intently today as your Spirit speaks comforting words to our heart’s today. We thank you, Lord…In Jesus’ name, Amen

Blessings be upon you and yours!

Much Love in Him,

    FYI scriptures says patience is a FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT so we already have but just need to claim and profess it. 😉

      Well, I’m not sure I quite agree that all we have to do is say “I have patience” and then instantly have it, if that is what you are saying. I agree with this statement, “Patience isn’t so much something believers receive, as it is an attribute that they develop over time and through experience”.
      Read more at In my 50 years of walking with the Lord, I have found that patience, especially when it is related to trials and waiting on the Lord, is something that comes with spiritual maturity and wisdom and trust in the Lord. and is gained from first hand experiences that teach us how to learn and exercise patience. From the thousands and thousands of letters I receive I can tell you not every Christian, is a patient Christian 🙂

      The Bible speaks so much about seeds/planting/the good/ bad soil/Jesus being the vine and we the branches/good fruit/good seeds…it all comes down to if we are abiding in Him John 15:4-5″Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. Here are a couple of links that talk about spiritual fruit and patience

      Blessings to you Annie!

    “Come Holy Spirit” – thank you for these “comforting” words, Debbie, and “thank You, Lord” for equipping Debbie with the ability to share your words to guide us to focus on “You”!! “Blessings” on you and your family, Debbie!!!
