Prayer For Aug. 16th

August 16, 2016

prayer from Debbie Kay, Hope For The Broken hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today we want to lift up all who are hurting…all who are dealing with uncertainty…all who have had their world turned upside down in one instant, with one phone call,with one doctor’s visit, one disaster, one tragedy…

Lord, there is so much going on in our world…natural disasters …wars and conflicts that have displaced millions…terrorism…tensions rising everywhere… the collapse of economies and  changing of societies such as Venezuela where it’s citizens have to wait in long lines just to get basic food..  not so long ago, we could not have imagined the things that are happening in our world…

Father, we pray for hope to rise up…we are told that we should not be surprised when we see these things happening…we are to look up knowing that our redemption is drawing near… what I’m picturing is when we take a plane and we are told to take the oxygen before our children, so we are able to take care of them… you are our life line…we have you to give us hope, support and encouragement… but so many in the world don’t know you…they don’t know how you have a plan to redeem what the enemy has meant for harm…they don’t know that you are in control…they don’t know the hope that comes from being your child…so many at this very moment are full of despair and hopelessness…they don’t see a way out, a way through, or light at the end of the tunnel…

Please help us to deal with our issues, Lord… help us to focus on you  and look to  you to heal our hurts, bind our wounds and renew and restore us so we can go out and offer your hope and the good news of the gospel to those  who are hurting…this world is so in need of you…all who are suffering need to know that you are the God of all comfort…that you are full of compassion and loving-kindness…that you never leave or forsake us and you help us to handle all that we face…

Help us to take care of ourselves so we can help take care of others…we need to sow seeds of kindness and love where there is hate…we need to minister to the hurting, even as we hurt… we need to grieve with those who grieve and give comfort as you have comforted us…we need to be lights in the darkness…we need to point the way to you…

May your hope rise in each of us, Lord…may we find encouragement in your Word…may we remember all who have gone before us who showed us how to live in faith, overcome, persevere and endure with hope in our hearts…may we show those same things to those who are looking for answers and reasons to hold on…

Lord, please touch all who are reading this…please pour out your grace, mercy and peace…may they see your hand in all things and know their worth, their purpose and calling. Please provide for all who are in need. Please lead, guide, heal and fill them with hope and joy. In the name of Jesus we ask these things. Amen

Keep Looking Up Friends! He will not fail!

In His love,
Debbie
