Prayer For April 19th

April 18, 2017

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

Dear Heavenly Father,

We make our plans, but so often things don’t work out the way we expect. We become frustrated, sometimes even angry when things don’t come together the way we think they should…it’s easy to become  disappointed when things fall apart after doing all the right things and putting our best effort into making something happen . We become agitated by delays like red lights, traffic jams, long lines and waiting on others.   If we could only see as you do, perhaps we’d find that those delays were actually to help us…perhaps even to save our lives from some unseen accident or injury or to bring something better to us that would not have been available if there had not been a delay. Help us to trust that you are in control and you have a plan for what you allow into our lives.

Please help us to remember that you order our days and the universe. Help us not to grumble and complain, but to praise you no matter what happens today…help us to see others through your eyes. How often we grow impatient with others…it’s truly hard to comprehend how you see beyond our faults and failings to how we are going to be. Oh, how much easier life would be if we could see people the way you do…please help us in this area… help us to see beyond the habits, traits and the faults of others that make them difficult to be around…  help us to recognize your Spirit within them. May we extend to others the same grace you extend to us.

Lord, please meet us where we are at. For those who didn’t get enough sleep…for those whose minds are going 100 miles a minute trying to figure out what to do in their difficult situations…for those who are foggy headed from grief lack of sleep and depression…for those who are in physical pain or are ill..for those who have too many things to do and not enough hours in the day….all of these things affect our decisions, our stress thresholds, our patience and our attitudes, but by your grace…with your help…with your peace… we can get through all we face today with a sense of calm, if we cling to you. We love you, Lord and we thank you and praise you. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen

Blessings, hugs and love to you all!
