My Dearest Father,
As I take an honest look around at the condition of our world, my heart breaks. I weep big tears knowing how broken we all are before you. You see it all. Nothing escapes you. We are all guilty before you. Father, please forgive us. Forgive us of our selfish pride and arrogance that continues to rear its ugly head and tells us that this world is all about us. That is the biggest lie we listen to. Help us to keep our eyes focused on you. Your word tells us that our attitude should be the same as that of Jesus Christ, who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant. This is hard for us Lord. We often think that we can do things better and wiser than you and we take matters into our own hand. Oh how wrong we are. Please forgive us. Help us to do everything without complaining or arguing, so that we may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation. Help us to shine like stars in the universe.
This week has been hard for all of us, Lord. Have mercy on us all. I am grateful that we have a Savior that has passed through the Heavens. I am grateful that He is able to sympathize with our weaknesses. Thank you Jesus for interceding on our behalf to the Father. You have been tempted in every way, just as we have, but did not sin. WOW! Thank you Father for understanding our hurt. Thank you that we can come before you confidently and receive your mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need EVERY TIME. Thank you for always being there. You never leave us or forsake us. You are faithful Father. Thank you for loving us first. We love you too! Amen
The one thing that unifies us more than anything else in this world is not our beliefs, values or opinions…it’s when we come together to pray. Won’t you join me today and lift up this prayer? When we approach His throne of grace with confidence we receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. That time is now…Lord hear our prayer!
