When I feel weak

Glad - Be Ye Glad

Prayers to encourage

God, I feel vulnerable. Thank you for the chance to encourage others. We are not alone. Our hearts can ache with loneliness. Take my brokenness, oh God.

I feel helpless at times. I am encouraged to get through each day, one day at a time. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. My life is a miracle. I am loved by you. You know the stars and call them by name. You know every sparrow. You desire life.

Thank you for all life. Life is a miracle. Thank you for my life. Thank you for preserving my life. I need You. You know me. You know my thoughts before I think them. You know the number of my days.

You know all things. You know the future. You care about me. You lead me. You give me light in a dark world. You keep me from stumbling. You heal my thoughts.

When Lazarus was dead, he could do nothing to make himself alive again. You, oh LORD gave him life. There is nothing I can do on my own. I need to stop saying no. Give me the power and freedom to say yes, LORD.

I am weak. Your strength is perfected in my weakness. You gave me life. You give me life. You are a God of hope. You encourage me to live. I do not understand time or space. I am overwhelmed by the future and what it holds. I know you hold the future in your hands. I trust you.

Forgive me for all the times I try to go on my own and fail. I have said I don't need you. I forget to talk to You. I avoid you. You are the potter. I am the clay. You are the vine. I am a branch. I have no life except when I am in the vine.


Glad A Mighty Fortress

Help me LORD

Help me to comfort others with the comfort You give me. I give you feelings of sadness and helplessness. I give you my discouragement. Help me to be a cheerful giver. You desire my light to shine. You say, ' the Spirit of God is not of timidity, but of boldness and power and self control'.

I can accomplish great things with you God. I know it is all You. I acknowledge it is all You. Give me peace like a river. It is well with my soul. Jesus loves me, this I know. For the Bible tells me so, little ones to Him belong. They are weak, but He is strong.

Thank you for hearing this prayer, oh God. Take away all my fears. You say, "Fear not." Help me to sing songs and hymns and spiritual songs. Fill my cup and let it overflow. Renew my mind. I praise you for being a God who hears, a God who sees, a God who saves.

As my mind plans the way, you direct my footsteps. Your ways are higher than my ways. Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts. You created all things. You sustain all things by your power.

You created the universe. You created time and space. You have a plan for my life. You care about me. You are the Great Shepherd. Your sheep know Your voice. When I hear a thousand voices, help me to hear Your whisper. When I can pray no more, hear my sighs..

Thank you Jesus,

Amen

I love it! Beautiful prayer. I got your message from Ohio!! I'm glad you guys are having a great time. I really really hope I get to come to MN soon. My hands are itching to feel the grip of the axe again.

Wonderfully spoken and encouraging. It is so nice to see believers unafraid to be themselves and share their beliefs. You are courageous and yes, wonderfully made! Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
