Prayer For July 16th

July 16, 2016

cross

Hello, Friends. Here is the prayer for today…

Our Father,

You tell us that we are told to pick up our cross and follow you. For many, they feel like their cross is too much to bear…but you never intended us to carry heavy loads by ourselves…you do not want us to collapse under the weight of our burdens…you stand  ready to to be our burden bearer…

Our crosses our not intended to be easy or light… they are allowed to draw us closer to you…they are often much more than we can handle on our own, but they are never more than we can handle with your help…our crosses becomes more of a burden when we become bitter and resentful, or when we begin to think that our load is heavier than others… Help us to remember that your yoke is easy and you make our burdens light. Help us not to resist or rail against our lot in life…help us to remember that anything you allow is for a purpose and you only want the best for us…


Father, help us remember that one day we will be trading our cross for a crown and our burdens will be lifted once and for all. Help us  to submit our will to yours. Help us to picture you walking beside us, carrying our burdens and giving us grace for the journey. Like offering a cool drink to a weary traveler,  you  offer your peace, your strength, your joy, your love, your grace…help us to remember to seek you when we feel our load starts to get too heavy…help us to stop in our tracks and not try to go a step further without your help…help us to see our times of adversity, grief, illness and loss as a chance to spend more time with you…a time to be closer to you and to experience more of you…you will not fail to help anyone who calls upon you…help us to learn to not take back our troubles once we turn them over to you… You stand ready to give us your Living Water, our Daily Bread and grace and strength for the day… you give us everything we need to finish the race before us and to finish it well…it’s up to us to receive it…help us to learn to surrender the things that weigh us down, hold us back and cloud our vision.

Thank you, Lord…for all you give…for all you do…for never giving up on us. We bow before you with humble hearts and open arms. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen

May the Lord’s blessings be upon you

In Him,
Debbie
