We currently have access to so many things. New products, new ideas, new dreams. Thousands of information and news. And that can easily take our focus away from the Lord, steal our attention to something that quickly fades away. But we need to be dependent on Him at all times, on His amazing grace. It is this grace that enables us to go through the most difficult situations in life without losing sleep, faith and hope.
So I would like to say a prayer on this topic. Say this powerful prayer with me! Remembering that you don’t need to pray exactly as you are here, because everyone has their own way of talking to the Father.
“Lord, teach me to depend only on You. In so many situations, I end up depending on people, resources, my work or my own understanding of life. But I ask that I may remember Your sovereignty every day. it is the Lord who has all knowledge, understanding and power over any circumstance.
In this prayer, I want to exalt You and recognize that You Lord is greater than anything. Bigger than any relationship crisis, bigger than any financial crisis, bigger than any illness. There is none like You. There is none greater than You. May I always remember the great things You has done, the greatest miracle that was the life we all received through Jesus and all the miracles the Lord has ever done in my life and family.
So many times I depend on things that are fleeting, instead of clinging to You, who is Eternal and Perfect. So many times I felt afraid because from my human and limited perspective, many situations seemed to have no way out. Anxiety arises, emotions are shaken. I forget that I have You, Lord, at all times to calm me down. Teach my heart to see how You sees situations.
Teach me to look to You at all times. Whether difficult times, moments of choices and decisions or happy and peaceful moments. May I recognize Your mighty hand in everything and always seek answers and solutions in You. May the Lord always guide and sustain me.
May my heart not depend or live around the things of this earth: goods, pride, status, positions, banal recognition, appearances. But may my heart depend totally on Jesus, the only one I can truly rejoice in. Jesus is all I need!
Father, teach me to truly depend on You alone! In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen!”
God bless you!
