September 30 Prayer
“Comfort the discouraged, Encourage those who are weak, be patient with everyone.
See to it that’s no one repays evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all.”1Thess.5:14-15
When life is hard and everything is not alright who do you turn to?
How do you hold the unanswered questions ?
The psalmist cries out; “.... with my morning prayer I wait upon You .Why, O Lord do you reject me, why hide from me your face?
Our God does not become weary of hearing our cries. He is patient with the weak and longs to comfort his children. He is not threatened by our questions and lack of understanding..
We say I will follow you, Jesus, wherever you go. But when we make mistakes and fail where do we run to, away or closer to him?
Stop and receive his grace in the place of your mistakes as we pray and receive a blessing from his word today.
Lord,we confess our mistakes in looking back to what we had and the way we expect things to go. We want to do all things for the love of God and not for the love of ourselves. Help us to see the illusions that we are holding unto and then be able to let them go.
Let us do it over again only with a greater awareness of your voice and direction.
We rest in knowing you are here in the middle of things not going the way we desire or have planned. We look for your grace in the unexpected events that cause us to wonder.
“Now May the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely. And May your spirit, soul, and body be kept sound and blameless for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.” vs23-24
