Sunday powerful prayer that must not pass you by.
This has been a long week. We require your assistance now more than ever. We beg that you lead our hearts and minds to you, and that you fill us with your Spirit, bringing refreshment, rejuvenation, peace, and joy. In your word, you remind us that you are faithful to bear our troubles. You promise to refresh our strength and to provide us with rest as we come to you.
Forgive us for working so hard to be self-sufficient that we forgot our need for you, living apart from your Spirit. Forgive us for allowing fear and worry to rule our brains and pride and selfishness to wreck havoc on our lives. Forgive us for not following your instructions and for living apart from your presence.
Thank you for having ways that are far larger than our methods and thoughts that are far deeper than our thoughts. Thank you for having a strategy to redeem. Thank you for making everything new. Thank you for looking down on the righteous, being close to the brokenhearted, hearing our prayers, and knowing our hearts. Thank you for your constant, strong presence in our lives, so that we can know that no matter what we’re going through, your heart is with us, your eyes are on us, and your ears are open to our prayers. Thank you for surrounding us with favor like a shield, and for keeping us secure in your care.
