Prayer For Nov. 8th

November 8, 2018

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

Our Father,

Your Word tells us that you are the God of hope and that we should rejoice in hope…that the hope of the righteous brings joy…that we should hope in you and hope in what we cannot see…that we grieve, but not as those who have no hope…You don’t tell us not to grieve…you don’t tell us not to cry… you expect us to have heavy hearts when we see those we love suffer… You want our hearts to break over the things that break your heart… when we see pain and heartache and all that is wrong in this world, you want us to have a heart of compassion and to pray… you don’t tell us to put on a constantly happy face, or pretend that everything is fine when it’s not… you  tell us to be honest…with you and each other…you tell us there is a time to mourn… you tell us to grieve with those who grieve…you tell us to comfort others with the same comfort that we have received from you… you tell us that those who mourn are blessed, because they will be comforted by you…you, the God of all creation, comfort us in our distress and affliction… you make note of  our tears in your book and you collect them in your bottle…we are made in your image…you understand when we are brought to our knees by illness, loss, and death…but you don’t want us to lose hope… you don’t want us to despair…you don’t want us to give up…you tell us to look to you…to trust in you…to let your hope fill us and bring us joy…you want us to find comfort, strength, guidance and encouragement in your Word…you want us to  remember that you give us a crown of beauty instead of ashes… the oil of joy instead of mourning…a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.

Help us to find safe havens of friendship, fellowship and family where we can be ourselves and be open and honest and not have to pretend that everything is okay when it isn’t…it’s not easy to trust, especially when we know from experience that not everyone is trustworthy or understanding…please lead and guide us and grant us wisdom, knowledge and discernment in these matters …may we all find the strength, acceptance and compassion we need that will allow us to take off our masks, to let down our guards and to dare to be vulnerable so we can find real healing and hope. Help us to be a safe place of compassion and understanding for others as well…In the name of Jesus we ask these things. Amen

May God bless you in ways you can’t imagine!

In His love,
Debbie
