The Lord is my light and my salvation;

Oh holy Father,

I seek you as I feel completely overwhelmed. I do not have the time or energy to sustain myself. Everything tells me there is too much to do.

Won’t you help me, oh Lord?

Show me your hand in control of all things. Let me rest in you. May I trust that you give me eternal blessings always. You alone are sovereign. You alone are the Lord.

So I stop at this moment and look for you, to feel the soft breeze of your merciful love carrying my worries away. You transform me. You change my heart.

I rise up strong again, in CHRIST. I face the world, my path straight and firm, with faith in your Son Jesus.

In his great name I pray,

  1. I need prayer for my Granddaughter, she was molested at age 5 and is now 16. She has gone thru so much turmoil. She has germaphobia and anxiety since this happened to her. She has and still is in therapy and on medication. She is a Christian and she loves and serves the Lord. Some days she breaks and cannot take the pressure. I ask for prayers of healing for her. She is the sweetest and dearest young lady ever. Thank you in advance.

    • Pour out your loving healing and help over Charlotte’s granddaughter O Lord… heal her wounds and bring peace to her heart… let her continue to trust in you and seek you O merciful Lord… give the family compassion and may they show her loving care… free them from the lies of the enemy… may your Spirit be abundant and acting in their hearts and home… set the granddaughter free O Lord in your loving grace, by the blood of Christ… in Jesus name, Amen.

    • Charlotte, I am so sorry for your dear Granddaughter, you and the family. What a horrible nightmare to go through. Knowing Jesus as her Savior is everything, He is everything she needs and I have faith He will deliver and set her completely free.
      I want to encourage you, to keep praying fervently for her. Your prayers for her are the best gift you could ever give her. Our children and grandchildren can never have too much love or prayers. I will keep her in my prayers. God Bless you.❤️

      Lord I pray for Charlotte’s granddaughter. Bring healing and peace to her heart. Your perfect peace Jesus. You know all the places in her that need healing and liberation. Pour out Your love and mercy upon her. Lord we thank you that You are bigger than any problem or circumstance we may face in life, and we know that all power and healing is in Your hand. I pray that Charlotte’s granddaughter will always have a heart that loves You Lord above all else. That she would run to You when she feels anxious and needs help because God, You are our refuge (Psalm 62:8). The days when she feels overwhelmed, I pray that no weapon formed against her will prosper (Isaiah 54:17). That she will have clarity and a sound mind, because You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind ( 2Timothy 1:7). Help her to know and hear Your voice God, give her discernment to know when thoughts fill her head with fear, confusion that they are not from You, but
      lies from the enemy. Give her strength to stand strong and help her mind to think on “ whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things” Philippians 4:8
      I pray that You would fill Charlotte with Your perfect peace. Give her strength and help her to “not grow weary in doing good by praying for her sweet granddaughter, so she may reap a harvest of blessing, if she doesn’t get discouraged and give up” Galatians 6:9. I pray for a strong unity and bond for this family, as they pray and support this dear young lady. “May You, the God of hope fill them with all joy and peace in believing so that by the power of the Holy Spirit they would abound open hope” Romans 15:13. Thank you for hearing and answering our prayers Lord. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
