A Prayer to Find Jesus in These Ridiculous Circumstances

Lord, I know You are with me. Always! Regardless of my circumstances, You promised to never leave me nor forsake me. Even King David said “Where can I flee from Your Spirit?”

I know You are faithful to fulfill Your Word. I trust You.

But right now, in the middle of this chaos, this crazy detour, this very difficult place, I cannot sense Your Presence. Although I know You’re here I need to feel the touch of Your hand.

A Prayer to Cease Striving and Rest in God

Lord, You are my Father — my good, good Father. I do not question that Your plans for me are good. I don’t even question Your ways — I’ve learned to trust in Your sovereignty.

But I still catch myself striving.

Like a gerbil on the wheel, some days I feel like I’m racing to accomplish all that is before me and not lose my footing, but it feels like I’m just madly going around in circles.

A Prayer When You Need God’s Grace Right This Minute

Lord, You are the God of peace, not the god of confusion — not the god of chaos. You are not the author of thoughts that run amuck and create their own three-ring circus.

A Prayer When You Want to Sing, But Praise Can’t be Found

O Lord, You alone are worthy of my praise. I desire to sing Your praise always. You are the One True God, the Maker of heaven and earth. You know the number of hairs on my head; You know my anxious thoughts.

A Prayer to Cling to God When Life is Messy

Lord, what would I do without You? When everything around me falls apart, You are steadfast. When fear slinks out of the darkness to taunt me, You give me courage and remind me that You are with me.

When despair consumes me and anxiety grips me, You are my Peace — not as the world gives, but perfect peace found only in You.

Life has taken some crazy, painful turns lately — most of them I don’t even understand and one-hundred percent of them I don’t like …

A Prayer When You Know He is the God of Peace but You Feel So Confused

Lord, I long to follow You closely — You. My Master, my Savior, my Lord. Place my feet in Your footsteps.

You, Lord, are my everything — the One I desire. You are my sustenance — my Bread of Life. You are my Light in the darkness — my Morning Star. My courage in fear, my hope in despair.

My Peace.

So why do I feel so confused?

A Prayer When You’re Stuck Between Expectations and Reality

Lord, I trusted You. I really did. I shared all of my dreams with You, my heart’s desires, my plans — I gave them all to You because I trust in Your faithfulness. I know Your goodness.

I know that I know You hear me when I call out to you … and You respond.

But now everything seems to be on hold. Now, sometimes, I wonder if You care about my disappointments, my difficulty in seeing everything come to a halt while I wait.

A Prayer When You Step Out of the Boat and the Waves Begin to Swell

Lord, I clearly heard You say, “Come! Step out of the boat.” And I did. I stepped out because I know that I know I can trust You. You, Lord, are faithful and true.

You are my Abba, Father — my Daddy God — who would never cause me harm. You pursue me with Your love. Your goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my life.

Lord, I know these things to be true, and by faith I walk in this knowledge.

So when I heard You call me to come, I did.
