Prayer for April 3rd

April 3, 2016

prayer

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for another day of life…Lord, please help us to not become bogged down with things like stress, problems in relationships and misunderstandings. So often someone who is having a bad day will take out their problems on us and then we have a bad day and dwell on all that has happened and then take it out on someone else in some way…the enemy so loves it when that happens… he loves to distract us and keep our focus from you …Lord, help us to handle things like Jesus would…help us to love others through the good and bad days…help us to see things through your eyes…please help us to respond instead of react…help us to weigh our words before we speak, so we don’t have to take them back…may our words be full of wisdom, mercy, grace and compassion…

Sometimes we are called to advocate for others…to speak up for our children, for an elderly parent or someone you put in our path…sometimes we even have to advocate for ourselves… sometimes, no matter how hard we try to avoid it, conflict is inevitable… sometimes it’s just because we have to speak the truth and the other person doesn’t want to hear it or face it…there are times that we try so hard to make our words sound kind, yet despite our best efforts and intentions feelings get hurt…relationships become strained… people get mad or take things wrong and it can be so disheartening.. we tried our best to do the right thing and yet things still ended up a mess….help us Lord in our difficult situations and relationships…please do a work and help us resolve the issues that need to be worked out with others…teach us when we need to persist in trying to mend relationships and when we need to walk away…please impart your wisdom and knowledge, Lord and let your will be done, not our own…please comfort us when our hearts are heavy…when we miss what was…when we have trouble accepting what is…when we don’t know what the next step to take should be…when we just want to withdraw from others because our heart is tired of being misunderstood and hurt…Lord, please help each of us where we are at with what ever difficulty we might be dealing with…

We take comfort knowing that you go before us…you know our heart’s and intentions…you know where we need to improve and you are a faithful Father who never turns anyone away when they ask for help or wisdom. Help us to take responsibility for the things that we can change in our own lives and help us to not take on anything that is not our fault, our responsibility or our problem… We know that you will close doors and open doors… not everyone who comes into our lives is meant to stay permanently in our lives…please, work and heal, lead and guide, comfort, renew and restore according to your will and in your timing, Lord. In the name of Jesus we ask these things. Amen

May the Lord hear your every prayer friends!

In His love,

Debbie
