Do you pray for other people a lot? What about praying for yourself? Sometimes, we need to pray just for ourselves. This doesn’t mean your are selfish. It simply means you trust in our good and generous God.
Take the time to pray for yourself. This gives you the comfort and restoration you need. You can gain meaning and freedom. Then you can serve others with renewed energy. First, receive the love and blessings of the Lord. Then, go out to share the Good News with the world.
“Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life; and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”John 6:68-69
Prayer for myself
O loving Lord,
I’m worn out & wounded. Do you see my struggle? Can you see me, Lord?
Right here, right now, I open myself up to you.
I’ve seen so many things. I’ve been hurt for far too long. And now the only hope I have is Jesus.
I know he never leaves me. He will never turn me away. And just by saying his name I begin to sense a change.
Jesus is my Lord, my Savior.
So heal me, O Lord, cleanse me. Lift me up to you again. I release all my pain, my worry, my shame – I give it all up to you.
In return you offer me eternal life. You are the Lord my God.
By your grace I am forgiven. I can be responsible & free. You make me strong & faithful. You fill my heart with joy.
May it all be for my good and for your glory.
In Jesus name,
