A Prayer When You Need a Green Pasture and Still Waters

Lord, I love You and I praise Your holy Name, for You are good. Always. Even when life is hard, You are good and merciful and kind.

Many of Your children are suffering relentless assaults from the enemy and we are tired. We need rest. The wonderful thing is knowing that YOU know this — You are El Roi — the God who sees and knows all about it. You are not aloof and far off. You, Lord, are right here

A Prayer When Your Need is Great

Lord, I love You. You are the great God — the One True God — and I belong to You. Yes! Because of Jesus, I belong to You and You belong to me.

How can it be? Such amazing love.

Thank You, Lord for Your love that carries me across troubled waters, that picks me up when I stumble. Thank You for Your grace that sustains and wraps me in the knowledge that You are near.

A Prayer When You’re Just Plain Tired

Lord, I am so tired I can barely think. It’s hard to do the things I need and want to do. But You are my strength! You are my God who has shown me Your might and power. I know of Your mercy and grace. And I rely on Your faithfulness to sustain me.

These things I know, and yet I am so tired.

My soul thirsts for You and my flesh longs for You in my weariness. You have taught me to seek Your Presence —

A Prayer When It’s Hard to Love Like God

Lord, You are mighty. You are good. You are love — pure love, everlasting love, love that never fails. Help me walk in — live-out — Your love.

At all times.

Especially in the ugly places and especially when no one is looking.

That’s when it really counts, isn’t it? That’s when it bears fruit, because that kind of love is of You and certainly not of ourselves.

A Prayer When You Don’t Want to Fret Anymore

Lord, return me to a place of peace. Forgive me for stepping out of Your peace, for it is available to me always. You, Lord, remain faithful. But I shift my focus and my thoughts on the obstacles and difficult places — I choose to fret —  and soon forget that You are the Great God, Ruler of all things.

You teach us to trust You, to know that our relationship with You is founded in great love — a love that surpasses all understanding.

Therefore, trust can be and should be a natural response.

A Prayer When Battles Rage and Endurance Wanes

Lord, I’m so thankful for Your mighty power that moves mountains for me, that guards me fiercely in the battles, that parts the Red Sea when I would otherwise drown. You are mighty!

And Your love is steadfast and true.

I depend on the strength of Your love. Thank You.

Sometimes I feel like I don’t have the strength to take another step. The battles rage around me — fiery darts bouncing loudly off my shield of faith, my legs bogged down with the weight pressing against my shoulders.

A Prayer When Finding Truth Isn’t as Easy as it Seems

Lord, You are the great God,mighty and true. All of Your ways are perfect. All of Your ways are righteous and just. You  are the God of Truth.

There is so much deception permeating our world. It clutters our minds and veils our knowledge of You and Your ways. May it never be, Lord!

Stir within us the gift of discernment that we might walk sure in Your ways. Keep our feet on the path of truth — our eyes on You, our ears open to Your voice of instruction.

A Prayer to Stir Our Deepest Longing For Jesus

O God, You are my God. You are my Refuge, my Strong-Tower. You are the One on whom I depend because You are faithful and trustworthy. My heart feels battered, my spirit worn, but You are my strength — the One on whom I lean for support.

You tell us to come to You when we are weary and heavy-laden. That’s how I feel Lord — heavy-laden, carrying burdens that are not mine to carry.

A Prayer When It Takes All You’ve Got to Cast Your Care on Him

Lord, Your goodness and grace sustain me. Your faithfulness undergirds me and fills me with the courage to face each day — peace to rise above what this world throws my way.

Teach me to really cast my cares on You because they are too great for me to carry.

Through Your Word, remind me who You are: my Way-Maker, Miracle-Worker, my Provider, and Protector. You are my Peace, my Strong-Tower, my Refuge, and Redeemer. You are my God and You are for me, not against me.

A Prayer For the Grace of God When We Need It

Lord, You amaze me with Your love and Your longsuffering. I don’t know how You do it, Lord — how You are so patient with us in our sanctification process. I guess that’s what makes You God, and not me. Thank goodness!

You’re teaching me a lot about Your grace and, though the lessons are hard, I’m thankful that I’m learning.

And I’m thankful that very slowly I am changing, evolving into Your likeness.

I’m thankful that You are molding me into a vessel for Your honor and Your glory.

Without the grace of God, none of these things would be possible.
