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.

A Prayer When You Need Some Answers From God

Lord, You have called us Your sons and daughters. You have allowed us to call You Abba, Father — our Daddy God — when You adopted us into Your family. That in itself carries us across the abyss between earth and Your heavenly places.

That, in itself, allows us a personal audience of one with the Maker of heaven and earth.

That, in itself, is amazing, and I thank You for making a way for us to know You — not just about You, but know You intimately.

What a miracle, Lord!

A Prayer When You’re Waiting for Joy to Come in the Morning

Lord, You have shown Your love to me — Your grace, Your mercy. You have given me glimpses of who You are, especially during the difficult places.

You are powerful. You are Almighty God — the Sovereign Lord. You are El Shaddai, the All-sufficient One who nurtures and comforts me.

A Prayer to Release Praise in the Midst of Suffering

Lord, You are mighty to save, to deliver me from all my troubles. You hung the stars in place, You tell the ocean how far it can come — nothing is too hard for You; You do all things well.

And yet, my suffering remains.

And my heart hurts.

And my mind drives me crazy with restless thoughts.

Where are You, God, when everything falls apart?

A Prayer When Tenacity Runs Short And Giving Up Hovers

Lord, my righteousness is found in You — my hope, my peace. In Your Presence I find comfort and strength — I know I am not alone. It boggles the mind to think that the Creator of the Universe knows my name and searches my heart that He might know me.

This is beyond understanding, yet I know it to be true.

Sometimes just the touch of Your hand is all I need to know everything will be okay. I speak Your Name — Jesus … Jesus — and You come alongside me, taking my hand in Yours and leading me away from the treacherous path. You lift me and carry me over the turbulent waters. You hoist me onto the Rock high above the enemy’s tactics and keep me safe.

Lord, it is such a privilege to know You — a miracle, really. May we never take it for granted. You are Almighty God, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, and You are our friend.

You have promised that we will know Your voice, so why is it so hard? Why do we make it so hard? You pursue us with Your love. You delight in making Yourself known to us. You have trained us up as a child teaching us spiritual discernment, imparting to us Your wisdom — You have been a good Father.

And You have taught us to recognize Your voice. Help us to trust that voice, Lord.
