Prayer For Feb. 20th

February 20, 2017


Hello, Friends! Here is today’s prayer…

Our Father,

There are multiple references in your Word that compare our lives to running a race…we are told that we should press on and keep moving toward what lies ahead…a runner is not idle…they must keep moving and be intentional with every step they take so they reach their goals…if they are constantly looking behind, they slow down and run the risk of tripping or falling and losing their momentum… they must learn to be wise and pace themselves…they must keep their eyes straight ahead, not looking to the left or right so they stay on target and are not distracted…running a race well, takes training, self-discipline, perseverance and dedication.

Lord, we can see how many of these aspects of being a runner can be applied to our spiritual walks…we can’t move forward if we are constantly looking back with regret, guilt or longing…help us to let go of anything that is hindering us or holding us back… please lead and guide us and help us to know your us to find our way to what you’ve called us to…help us to keep our eye on the prize and not the storms and distractions that surround us…we always want things to be done quickly and easily, but a runner doesn’t start out being able to run a marathon…they must start slow and take certain steps to increase their strength and stamina…help us to learn to be patient with ourselves, with you and with others…

We pray for all who are dealing with a new normal…for all who find themselves in difficult places in life …please be their strength…help them to find their footing…help them to navigate their grief and pain and help them learn how to live life with the changes and losses that have been thrust upon them…please provide for their needs…we know sometimes when we are too weak and weary, you carry us…we all have those times when we feel we can’t take one more step…during those times, you tell us when we wait on you… you will renew our strength so we can run and not grow weary.

Please, help us to remember that you have not brought us this far to abandon us now…help the hurting, weary and discouraged to remember that there are heavenly hosts cheering them on even as we pray…its hard to keep pressing on when you feel like life has lost its meaning and you’ve lost your purpose…you see each one who feels that way,Lord…you are the healer of broken hearts,dreams and lives…you are The Giver Of Life, The Creator of All…may everyone praying find new strength, a renewed sense of self and the courage to dare to dream. Stir a fire in us, Lord…renew our passion and hope…help us to keep looking forward and to keep reaching for your best. In the name of Jesus we ask these things. Amen

Blessings to you friends!

In His love,
