Prayer For May 17th

May 17, 2016

prayer from Debbie Kay, Hope For The Broken Hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the opportunity to join together again in prayer. We pray for our brothers and sisters around the world who are persecuted for their faith…we lift up those who cannot pray, worship, or speak your name in public without risk of persecution, jail, and death…may we never take our spiritual freedoms for granted, Lord…help us to treasure the ability  to worship freely, to gather together with other believers, to own a Bible and to speak your name and praises openly…

Lord, as we gather, you know the many needs…you know all who are ill, all who are broken, all who are weary, all who are distressed…Lord, please meet each need…physically, emotionally, mentally, financially and spiritually…help us to remember that our greatest need is you…without you, we are empty vessels…without you, Lord we would sink under the weight of our sin, our grief, our pain, our losses…help us to empty ourselves of things like pride, jealousy, anger, bitterness…cleanse us Lord… renew a right spirit and attitude within us…fan the flames of our first love for you…purge us of things that cloud our vision and judgement…help us to take a spiritual inventory to see where we come up short…where  we are lacking or are wrong in our thinking…

Lord, we often have good intentions and then life happens and we get sidetracked…we want to spend more time with you…we want to read the Word more…pray more…worship more…serve more… love better…and then we don’t…and we feel like we let you down and we let ourselves down as well… as we look back on our lives, we can see the road littered with good intentions that never became what we had hoped or envisioned…

Lord, help us to let go of the “what ifs”, the “if onlys”, the regrets, the failures, the disappointments, the heartaches…all the things that we can’t change…help us not to waste another day beating ourselves up emotionally, mentally, spiritually…we can’t change the past, but things are not wasted if we can learn from them…help us to extract the lessons from the failures, regrets and pain…help us harvest what we can and let go of the rest so we can make the most of this day and all the days to come…help us to see all we have been through with your eyes…help us, Lord…you know what we lack, what will motivate us, what will heal us, how to guide us…we ask for your help to live victoriously, to live confidently as your children, to enjoy the freedom you bought for us, to be full of your peace and aware of our blessings…

Father, help us to make the most of this day and all the days we have left…help us to take control of what we can, do the best that we can and then leave the rest up to you…help us to be still at your feet and find rest in your presence…we surrender all that we are and all that we hope to be and ask for your will, not ours to be done. In the name of Jesus we ask these things. Amen

Praying blessings of peace, comfort and love for you friends!

Much love in Him,
