Prayer For Sept. 20th

September 20, 2017

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We are told that everything written in your Word is meant to encourage us and give us hope. David in the midst of his grief and discouragement spoke encouragement to himself…he would ask himself, “why am I discouraged, why am I sad…my hope is in God…I will praise Him again, for He is my Savior and God…each night He pours His unfailing love upon me…each night I pray to The One who gives me life”…

The Bible says that you, our God, are in our midst. You are the warrior who saves. You delight in us and rejoice over us with joy filled songs…you quiet our fears with your love…when we read those words in the Bible we can picture a parent sitting beside their child at night singing them to sleep…comforting them and soothing their fears, drying their tears, speaking gentle words of assurance so they can rest peacefully… so their last thoughts as they drift off will be the soothing sounds of a parent who loves and cares for them and is beside them to watch over them…children never know the many nights a parent sits in the dark gazing lovingly at them, just watching them breathe…the nights when they are having fitful sleep and their parent is there rubbing their back and speaking soft words, “it’s okay, I’m here”…we picture the love we have for our children…the love a parent has for their children, and we realize that our love doesn’t begin to compare to the love you have for us…

Lord, may we be moved when we picture you sitting beside us, singing over us and reminding us that all is well…that we are loved…that we are under your watchful eye and that we can go to sleep without fear or worry, because you are awake… our struggles, heartaches, losses and pain will never have the last word over us when we remember that you are our Abba Father.

We see so clearly the enemy is at work…spiritual battles are all around…at times we don’t hear your voice as loudly and clearly as we would like, but you are always there whispering your words of love and encouragement over us… you are always there as the fierce warrior, protecting His children…You are there as the wise Father who always knows what to do in every situation…

When we feel overwhelmed, distraught or discouraged, help us to remember you are near…may we be mindful that Jesus is sitting at your right hand interceding for us…may we speak encouragement to ourselves and remind ourselves that our hope and help is in you, our Savior and God. We love you, Father and with gratitude we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen

May your heart be at peace!

In His love,
