Prayer For Aug. 11th

August 12, 2016

prayer from Debbie Kay, Hope For The Broken Hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is today’s prayer…

Dear Lord,

As we gather today, we ask to feel your nearness…may we picture being embraced by your nail pierced hands… your scars remind us that you know all about pain and suffering. You are well acquainted with grief and sorrow and you understand the things that we go  through better than anyone else.

How grateful we are Lord that we can come to you just as we are … we don’t have to wear a fake smile or say we’re “fine” when we aren’t… we can bear our souls and know there is nothing inside of us that you don’t understand… there is nothing that will ever make you turn away. You see past our humanness and scars…we don’t have to explain what we go through to you…we don’t have to try to defend ourselves or make you see the truth of a situation… you see and know before we even utter a word or thought…you see what we don’t even see ourselves…you see the beauty within us that no one else can see… you see the work you are doing in us…you see past how we are, to how we will be…you see how the sand makes the pearl…you see how the coal becomes a diamond… how the caterpillar emerges as a butterfly…you see and understand more fully than we can how all the pain, pressure and suffering of this world is going to produce something of lasting value within us… others may not understand us or see the beauty in the ashes, but you do. If you can turn all that Jesus went through on the cross and all that horror into a thing of beautiful redemption for the world, we know that you can take every broken piece of our lives and redeem everything we’ve been through. Thank you Lord, for seeing what we can’t see and for your patience with us when we question your plan and purpose for everything you allow to touch our lives.

Lord, please let us see your majesty in the midst of our lives…. Give us a glimpse of your glory and may it sustain us in all that we face. Thank you for loving us just as we are…thank you for not leaving us where you find us…thank you for picking us up and carrying us when we feel like we’re too tired to go on. Thank you for your Holy Spirit that infuses us with your grace, peace and comfort. Lord,  we are grateful that we have a Savior who understands and who is mighty to save…we praise you our risen King…the One that defeated death, so we might live…live in us today we pray, Lord…give us more of yourself as we cling to you this day. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen

May His you be at rest in Him today!

In His love,
Debbie
