Prayer for a fierce heart

There are so many broken hearts these days. There’s so much anger, pain, and sorrow. Where can you find strength again?

The strong, fierce heart is not a hard heart of stone. Instead, it’s open and ready to give. To love. True fierceness in the Lord follows the example of Jesus Christ. And those who have been given much, will love much. Those who have tasted God’s abundant grace will not be afraid. Stand firm and look forward to the coming dawn.

I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Psalm 16:8

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

PRAYER FOR A FIERCE HEART

O merciful Lord,

I’m struggling right now. I hurt inside, but I can’t stop. Life moves on. Many depend on me. What happens if I crumble? What happens if I fail?

Your promises are eternal, O Lord. Sometimes with my head I don’t get it. I get scared. But my heart knows full well as the heart cannot deny a love so pure as the love of my Lord.

With you, I know I’ll move ahead. Sometimes I’ll stumble, even fall. But you’ll fill in the gaps. You’ll lift me up off the floor and give me rest in the sacred wounds of Christ.

Beyond my faults & fragility, give me a fierce heart, O Lord. A heart broken open long ago to let you in. A heart that clings to you with all it’s might. Never letting go of hope. Never giving up on love.

I pray for this, trusting in you,

in Jesus name,

Amen.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Matthew 5:3-5

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.
