Prayer For Feb. 24th

February 24, 2016

prayer from Debbie Kay, Hope For The Broken Hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

You know where we are at and how at times we struggle to get through our days. We have read in your Word, how  the Apostle Paul had such affliction and distress that he despaired of life…we  read about  David who was also very  real and raw about his joy, as well as his pain. These are just two of the examples that we are given that show us that we don’t have to wear a mask to hide our pain…we are not less of a Christian because we admit when we are hurting…

Many people try to make us feel like there is something wrong with us if we admit that we are not in a good place. Many people would have us believe that Christians are only meant to have good health, prosperity and abundance here in this world and that we should not ever feel sad or depressed. We are human and you created all emotions…expecting we would experience all of them. To deny that we feel pain and sorrow, is to deny who you created us to be.

Your word clearly shows that those who served you and followed you,  suffered greatly and their lives were hard. You told us that to follow you was to share in Christ’s sufferings… You  word doesn’t attempt to sugar coat anything. Those who loved you, grew weary and were full of despair at times… but they also knew that you allowed these things so they would see their need for you and depend on you instead of  themselves… They knew that through the pain and adversity, they would see your hand move on their behalf…that you would be faithful to provide and that you would sustain them with your strength. They knew that you would work everything for good, because they were called for your purpose… They didn’t stay in a pit of despair, they kept their eyes firmly fixed on you and they knew as they called out to you, you would hear them…they saw their faith strengthened, and they found your word was true and that you were a faithful deliverer.

No matter where we are today…we are called to do everything as unto you… We  are to seek to please you… to love you, to bring glory and honor to you in the midst of our pain, in the midst of loss, in the midst of uncertainty. We know that a day spent serving you, is better than 1,000 pain-free days serving ourselves. You are the God Who is the Source of every comfort, consolation and encouragement. You comfort us in every trouble and affliction, so we can comfort others who are in distress and trouble.Thank you for going before us and standing beside us in all that we face, Lord.  Fill us with your strength…may we feel your presence and remember all the examples of  your followers who have gone before us. May we draw strength and courage from their witness to live our lives authentically for you…help us not to worry about what others think or say…help us to remember that we live for you and it is only your approval that we need or should seek. Please go before us this day and lead and guide us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

God bless you friends!

In His love,
Debbie
