Feeling low on energy and hope? Are you in a struggle or hoping for something hugely important? Nobody can control the world, but if you see things from a spiritual perspective, it enables you to stay solid in the tough times.
God hears your prayer and sees your struggle. He might also be taking advantage of the situation to form your character (patience, dedication, loyalty, faithfulness, etc.). Trust and be aware of this process. Stay faithful to the fight and to God. Plus, let him do the heavy lifting. Appeal to his goodness and mercy when you pray to him.
Above all, trust in God and his promises. Accept his will, and you will discover wonderful mysteries along the way. No, it won’t be easy, and it might not turn out the way you expect. But if you give it up to God, it will be heavenly.
Audio message and prayer from Vincent:
Has this site blessed you? Learn about our patron program.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not frightened, neither be dismayed; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us.
PRAYER TO BE PERSEVERANT
O merciful Lord,
My struggle seems to go on forever without end. Sometimes I feel like giving up.
What can I do, O Lord?
I invoke your Spirit once again to pour out God’s grace over me.
Restore my inner strength, make my position solid. Strengthen my character.
Help me to trust more in you my Lord, my God.
Let not a single moment go to waste, O Lord. May it be a constant, ongoing conquest of my heart.
May I give up more to you. as you give me all I need.
The battle is yours, O Lord, your victory guaranteed.
I dig in and find sure footing. I plant my feet firmly on Christ.
In Jesus, I am complete. My mind and heart at rest. My soul secure.
I pray for this in Jesus name,
