Prayer for a heart like Jesus’

It’s difficult to maintain a tender heart these days. Like everyone, you face lots of pressure. You encounter people who are angry, sad or frustrated — and it hurts. Your own troubles weigh you down. And as a defense, you might be tempted to harden your heart.

But a hard heart keeps God’s Spirit out too. A hardened heart doesn’t feel much pain or joy. It’s afraid to love. So return to the Lord to have your heart restored. He waits for you now and always.

Let the Lord renew you. Let him return your heart of flesh. Let him give you a heart like Jesus’.

 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.

Ezekiel 36:26

PRAYER FOR A HEART LIKE JESUS’

O blessed Lord,

I’ve been through so much. I’m beat, down & tired. So many worries. So much pain. My own failure faces me.

Can you help me, O Lord? Will you lift up this weary child once again?

May your Spirit speak to my spirit again. I listen. I trust & believe. I refuse to accept that all is lost. I reject the lies of the enemy telling me there’s no hope. The Lord cleanses me. He heals me.

For my God is the God of the living, and Jesus Christ my salvation. So I will embrace life as difficult as it may be. And my heart will hurt sometimes.

But Jesus loves me with a human heart. Give me a heart like his heart. Healthy. Strong. Full of life.

Not afraid to feel. Not afraid to love.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.

Prayer for when your heart hurts

Have you been suffering from a hurting heart? Maybe you are in a fight with someone, or maybe there’s a distance, and it’s been going on for a long time. Or perhaps someone you know is hurting themself. It seems like there’s no way out, no solution.

Perhaps you’ve reached a point where you’re no longer interested in who’s right or wrong. You just want the relationship and people to heal. You hope for restoration. But there may be a lot of history, the struggle continues, and the hurt remains.

So you can choose to run away, harden your heart, or run to God. Is love is worth the wait? Let the Spirit be your comfort and your guide.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:6-7

PRAYER FOR WHEN YOUR HEART HURTS

O merciful Lord,

I tremble. I’m weak. I barely have the strength to pray.

I just want to run away from it all. Part of me has been hurting for oh so long.

But my heart knows, and my spirit knows.

And my soul cries out “Go to the Lord!” In you I will find my refuge.

I struggle to understand. It so hard to accept the pain I feel in my heart.

For love lives there, and love will suffer for its beloved.

Here I am, O Lord! Here I am!

I have nothing left to give. I feel empty & abandoned.

So I seek you. I cling to you. In Jesus name I ask for your healing mercy.

I go to you as I have no other answer, no other hope

than Jesus Christ my Savior, my Lord.

Amen.

Prayer for Ukraine

As there are nearly 300 prayers posted on this site, I haven’t posted a new prayer for some time now. My writing efforts now focus on answering prayer requests and on the Third Millennium Man website.

Yesterday, someone requested a prayer for Ukraine, and a faithful online friend responded. Jan is a true servant of Christ. She has lovingly responded to many, many prayer requests here. Jan is a blessing for me and for many others.

Here is Jan’s heartfelt prayer for Ukraine:

. . . . . . .

Lord,

We lift our brothers and sisters in Ukraine up to You. Your Word tells us that “You are our refuge and strength and ready to help in times of trouble” Psalm 46:1.

Give them strength and courage Father, and help them in this time of trouble. Hide them (Psalm 27:5) when trouble comes, out of reach of their enemy.

Draw near to them so they feel Your loving presence Jesus. Comfort them (2Corinthians 1:3-4) and surround them with those who will pray for and with them.

When fear is upon them bring to their minds that “You are with them, for You are their God; You will strengthen them, You will help them, You will uphold them with Your victorious right hand” Isaiah 41:10.

Keep them warm as they huddle in cold basements and parking garages. Provide them their daily bread.

Bring sweet sleep to them when they sleep at night, knowing You are watching over them (Psalm 121:4).
Give them godly wisdom, clarity and clear direction of the steps they should take.

Send your angels as a hedge of protection around the people of Ukraine (Psalm 91:11).
Bring confusion to the enemy, blind them and whatever evil they do, let it fall back upon them.

I pray that the heart of Vladimir Putin would soften and that he would relent. Bring conviction to the hearts of the Russian soldiers so they would lay down their weapons and retreat. Stir the hearts of the Russian people and let their voices be heard to this injustice.

God, You love justice, execute justice to the people of Ukraine. Assert Your righteousness. Triumph over evil. Establish peace in not only the land but in the hearts of the people.

God of mercy, bring fathers, sons and husbands back safely to their home and family.

All power is in Your mighty hand Lord. Thank you for hearing and answering our prayers.

In the mighty name of Jesus,

Amen

At 5 for you

Last Monday, I began a new writing project. I get up at 5 a.m., pray a bit, then I begin writing whatever comes to my mind and heart. During this early morning time, I often think about you. I’m not sure when my writing will be finished, but you’ll be the first to know.

I’ll let you know how my progress goes…

Have an awesome and blessed weekend!
