Prayer For Feb. 21st

February 21, 2016

prayer from Debbie Kay, Hope For The Broken Hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We ask for forgiveness for the times we grumble and complain about our circumstances. We think about the Israelites in the Old Testament and how they often complained. They complained about the food that you provided for them  and actually thought that they had more abundance as a captives. They could not see your provision and all they had to be thankful for.  What amazing mercy, grace and restraint you show your children. You do all these things for us and  yet we complain when things aren’t done the way we think they should be done.

Lord, may we learn from the examples of others who have gone before us…both good and bad… As Moses and your children wandered in that desert, they had you leading them by a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. They had tangible signs of your presence and saw miracle after miracle and yet they asked where you were in the midst of their difficult circumstances.

Lord, it’s so hard to imagine how they could feel the way the did when the signs of your presence and working on their behalf surrounded them constantly…the parting of the Red Sea, manna falling from the sky, the plaques that you called down on Egypt…they saw you working all around them and yet they grumbled and complained. Would we be any different from the Israelites if we did receive more tangible awareness of your presence? Would we still grumble and complain because you didn’t answer the way we thought you should?

Lord, help us to be more trusting of you and your ways. Help us to remember all that you have done in the past. Help us to live with an attitude of gratitude. We may not have all of those major miracles staring us in the face daily like your children did, but you do show us in so many ways that you are with us and we have your promises to carry in our hearts always. Help us to have clear and focused vision. Help us to see past the bad stuff to see you working in our midst. Help us to see your hand and hear your voice. Help us to be thankful children whose hearts grow softer instead of harder with tribulation.

Many of us feel like we have been in the desert for so long…many feel lost in the wilderness. Many feel like they are weary and parched with enemies closing in on them. Father, may we all feel your presence and your spirit with us today.  You sustained your children one day at a time and  you do the same with us. You give us grace, strength and power for this day. The past is done, the future is not guaranteed…but you do promise to care for all that call on you this day. Hear our petitions, Lord and draw us  close to yourself. We thank you for this day of life you’ve given to us. May we serve you well. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Blessings be upon you!

In His love,
Debbie
