Prayer For April 8th

April 8, 2017

Hello, Friends! I’m feeling led to re-post this prayer today…

Dear Lord,

You are all too aware that we live in a world that is full of brokenness…broken lives, broken marriages, broken families, broken relationships, broken bodies, broken spirits, broken hearts, broken trust, broken plans, broken dreams…and all of this brokenness causes such incredible pain…you know because you felt the weight of all of it on the cross… every day people look up to the heavens and cry out in despair, “Don’t you know what I’m going through? Don’t you care? Why don’t you do something?”

If we only take time to look away from our pain and look to the cross, we see that you did do something…every teardrop is reflected in every drop of blood that you shed…every anguished cry to you  is reflected in your cry to your Father asking, “Why have you forsaken me?”…every blow we have ever been dealt in life you were matched blow for blow physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually…you know the feelings of pain, grief, loss and being forsaken and alone…you know what it feels like to be feel burdened to the point of sweating drops of blood…of being rejected and falsely accused and persecuted…you know all too well the pain of living in this fallen world…it made you weep when you were here and it makes you weep still…

You grieve with us, you wipe our tears and hug our hurting hearts…you pray and intercede and watch over us and whisper to us that you are near and that we are not forgotten or forsaken…the scars  in your hands and feet  are reminders of all you sacrificed for us…you don’t need a reminder of what we are going through…we are the ones that need to remember all you’ve done for us when we start to question, doubt and complain…

Lord, help us remember this is the dark before the dawn and these trials and hard things in this life are but a vapor compared to eternity…nothing can compare to the joy that is coming…the healing that is coming…the restoration that is coming…the utter joy that is coming when we will be united with you…may your promises be a soothing balm for us on the hard days…may we hear your voice and remember the many ways you show your love and tender mercy towards us. We bow before you Lord and thank you for being our Savior in whose name we can pray. Amen

May you be comforted and filled with His peace!

In His love
Debbie
