PRAYER FOR THE POWERLESS

O loving Lord,

The world hurts so much now. The desire for power is inflamed more than ever. And the poor & meek suffer, now more than ever. What can be done, O Lord?

Reveal once again to my heart when Jesus came to me. It was when I was broken, wounded and ashamed. Your loving mercy broke open my heart, and your Spirit rushed in.

Let me remember how I was powerless to save myself. But you restored me. You lifted me up.

Pour out your restoration, O Lord. Send your Holy Spirit in abundance. The poor, the meek, and those who mourn, draw them closer to Christ.

Pour out your mercy, send us your grace. We’re all broken and need healing. We all need a Savior. We all need you, O Lord.

In Jesus name,

Amen.

Prayer for when you are overwhelmed

Covering too many bases these days? Lots of fires to put out? Or maybe you have complex, long-term responsibilities piling up.

One of the reasons you might feel overwhelmed (besides having tons to do) could be due to scattered thoughts. You mind bounces around trying to solve too many things at once, and it’s exhausting.

God is not only the creator of life, he’s also the organizer of your life. Ask him to bring his order to your thoughts. This allows you to stay focused and save energy.

Cry out to the Lord. Show him how hard it is for you. Let him reveal to you a more heavenly way to see things. Be lifted up by the Spirit of God. He will give you calm and strength to continue.

Do it all for our Lord Jesus Christ. Do it all for love.

Prayer for when you are overwhelmed

Audio message and prayer from Vincent:

On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. And a great storm of wind arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care if we perish?” And he awoke and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you no faith?” And they were filled with awe, and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even wind and sea obey him?”

Mark 4:4:35-41

PRAYER FOR WHEN YOU ARE OVERWHELMED

O merciful Lord,

So many tasks & worries, everything pulls at me, pushing me past my limits. I feel an explosion inside. How much more can I take?

Call me back to you, O Lord. Bring me out the wilderness, away from the chaos. Even during a storm Jesus slept, as he knew his Father loved him.

So even now, as I feel completely overwhelmed, may your Word guide me. May your Spirit give me clarity and strength.

In Jesus name, cast out the enemy far from me.

You see me as I am, O Lord. I wait and rest in you. This moment too shall pass, but your love is eternal, your Kingdom everlasting.

May I rest with Jesus in the loving arms of our Father, in thy Kingdom come.

In Jesus name,

Amen.

Prayer for courage to do the right thing

When you face a tough decision, sometimes the right choice is the hard choice. Sometimes it’s much harder. Still, if you compromise your values, it’s never without consequences.

The Christian life is counter-cultural. You might sometimes be seen as odd for doing things “the hard way.” But how much is it worth to sleep well at night knowing you’ve gone the extra mile to do the right thing?

Even if you’ve been making moral compromises for a while, it’s never too late to turn things around. It doesn’t have to happen all at once. Take a step in the right direction. Take a stand. Ask God to back you up. And walk the walk of Christ. It’s the walk that leads to life.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

Matthew 7:13-14

PRAYER FOR COURAGE TO DO THE RIGHT THING

O heavenly Lord,

I feel like I’m being torn apart. I know what’s right, but it won’t be easy. Not at all. I admit it. I’m afraid. Won’t you help me?

Reveal to me, O Lord, your way. Show me the firm, solid path. It may not be easy, but it’s where Jesus walks. He’s right there next to me. And when the climb gets steep my Lord will lift me. Carry me. For this weak and fragile soul can’t do it alone.

I trust and lean on you. Build my courage to face the day. Let it not fill me with pride, instead may I be humbled knowing that in some small way I imitate Christ.

My Lord Jesus held nothing back as it was all for love. May I too go to the cross, be driven by love, and give glory to God.

In Jesus name I pray,

Amen.
