Prayer For Aug. 18th

August 18, 2016

prayer from Debbie Kay, Hope For The Broken Hearted

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

Today, we ask for your strength to overcome. We ask for help in changing our thoughts and feelings so they will be aligned with your Word and your will. We know many people tie their happiness to their circumstances. So many think if they just had the right mate, the right job or the right place to live, then they would have contentment…then life would be good. Many people feel they can’t be happy until the economy improves, until they have children or they lose weight…there are so many things that we think we need to find happiness. There are so many things that we focus our time and attention on, thinking these things are what will bring fulfillment and peace, but you alone are our true source of peace and contentment.

May we see ourselves in light of Your word. May we feel confident in your love for us. When we see ourselves through your eyes…when we base our worth on how you value us, the words of others won’t cause us to despair. The loss of a job, a relationship or our status in life, won’t make us feel incomplete or inferior, because we know who we are in you. If we find ourselves in difficult circumstances, help us to remember that nothing touches our lives that hasn’t first come through your hands. You are sovereign and Lord of all. You will redeem any loss, tragedy or circumstance and use it for good.

Help us to overcome the problems that keep overtaking us. Help us to resolve these issues once and for all. Please help us to learn our lessons. Help us to find strength, determination and perseverance to say , “enough is enough.” I am an overcoming child of the King and I am going to walk in the victory that Christ has bought for me! Help us to die to our flesh and our selfish wants, needs and desires. Help us to live like you could come back tomorrow.

Lord, we know life is hard, but you are good. We grieve, but we don’t grieve as those who have no hope. We struggle and have difficulties, but these trials are working eternal treasures in our lives. We pray for deliverance from despair, from apathy and from wrong or impure thoughts and motives. We pray for the ability to overcome anything that takes our eyes from you. Hear our cries, Lord. Help us not to settle for anything less than your best for us. Help us to cherish our days and make the most of the opportunities that you put before us. Give us a hunger to learn more about you and to become more like You. We love you Lord and we ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen

May you walk in His victory today friends!
Much love in Him,
Debbie
