Daily Devotional – 2/9/18 “Prayer for the weary”

Our Father in Heaven,

God, today as I come to your throne, I ask for your will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us bread that shall sustain us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the hands and the mouths of evil doers. Forgive us of our sins as we forgive those who have hurt us. Because it is then we live, breath and have our being in you. God, I thank you for everything before I ask for anything. Thank you for a regulated mind, for keeping power and protection. Thank you for the person reading this prayer who may be weary in body and spirit for it is they I need you to touch. It is the person who cannot stop the tears, the nightmares, the night sweats and anxiety attacks. It is the person who keeps looking for their morning joy because their weeping has gone on too long. It is for the person whose pain has become unbearable. It is for the person whose checking account is still in the negative and bills overdue. This prayer is for the person who encourages everybody yet barely holding on. Help today God. For the family who is grieving, the mother who had to bury a child, the child who had to bury a parent and the sibling who had to close the casket on a brother/sister. This prayer today is for the weary because I need you to blow fresh wind of peace. Even if the battle isn’t over, blow on them so they can bear it. Even if the sickness is not yet at its end, send strength so they can go on. Even if they have to suffer a little while longer, let them know their sacrifice isn’t in vain. Help today God for we shall not be defeated, we’ve come too far. Help today God because we shall not give up now. Help today God because victory has to be ours, we’ve been victims too long. Help today God, we shall not lose hope when our break is just beyond the break, our yes is behind the next no, our deliverance is about to delivered and our help is in you. God, I am believing it now because I know what I heard and you said, we shall not lack. I claim these things as though they are, for every person reading this. These things I ask in your name, for the weary body of believers, by faith that it is already done.
