A Prayer When Downcast is Your Word of the Day

Lord, many are the afflictions of the righteous, but You have promised to deliver us out of them all. And I know You will because I know You are faithful.

Lord, thank You for being so good. Goodness is innate within You. It is who You are. I hold fast to this truth in light of this world that is spinning out of control.

I choose to trust You. I stand on the promises of Your Word — the promise to hear me when I cry out to You, the promise that You have plans and a future of hope for me … the promise that what was meant for evil against my loved one will be used for good.

The promise that You are our peace in the chaos and our Light in the darkness.

My Father’s Name is I Am. Can You Imagine?

I curled my bare toes into the freshly mowed grass. Stretched out, resting on my elbows, I thought about the Lord on this early fall day. So many needs. So many fears. Such despair from all corners of the earth. I would surely lose hope, but I remembered — I remembered my Father’s name is I AM.

I AM anything you have need of: protection, provision, strength, peace, healing …

A Prayer When Heavy-Laden is Your Heart

Lord, I am so heavy-laden. My heart is overwhelmed. I’m drowning in fear and sorrow — slipping quickly into the pit of despair.
