Prayer For April 22nd

April 22, 2017

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

Dear Heavenly Father,

Your Word tells us that you have known us before we were born and every day was laid out in your book before a single day had passed…before we were even born, you knew all that the enemy would do to try to harm us and you had a plan in place for how you would redeem everything for good.

When a person dies at a young age, or when someone dies in what we call a “senseless tragedy,” we think that their life was cut short… but the reality is, all our days are ordained before we are even born. Your Word says that the day we die is better than the day we are born…and when the righteous die early, you are protecting them … they escape this life with all its evil, heartaches and difficulties…they leave the troubles of this life to find everlasting joy and peace in your presence. Our loved ones do not miss growing old here… they would tell us, if they could, not to mourn over what “could have been”… they have gained far more by being with you, than anything they have lost here.

Father, many struggle with these truths…many struggle with your sovereignty…many struggle with the thought that anything less than a long life is a tragedy…help us to see life and death through your eyes. Give us your wisdom and insight to see past our emotions and the lies of this world. Our grief is often compounded by things we don’t understand and  by our unanswered questions…please help those who are hurting to feel your comfort and nearness. One day we will see everything clearly and we will understand your master plan, but until that day, help us to trust the things that are unknown and unclear, into your hands.

This life is can be so harsh but you are so faithful to see us through all we face.  Thank you for your comfort and for meeting us where we are at. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen

May you feel God’s presence and nearness today!

In His love,
Debbie
