Today we will pray for a theme recently written here on the blog… as it is known, in this world we will have afflictions, as Jesus said in John 16:33, but in the same verse He also says: “but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world”. How good it is to know that our King has already conquered all the evil that we could face, isn’t it?
Sometimes it seems that we will not be able to cope, as I told some of my testimonies, but it happens that in Christ we are strengthened, we find shelter, salvation, healing, care, and much more when we believe that there is no way out, but He is the solution, He sends resources and people from where we never imagined He would come.
So today let’s pray together for the strengthening of our faith and for His provision in the midst of all the trials we are going through!
Here are some passages especially for you today:
3 Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.Romans 5:3-5
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.Romans 8:28
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?Romans 8:35
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.2 Corinthians 1:3,4
17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.2 Corinthians 4:17,18
Remember that you don’t have to repeat the prayer exactly as I am going to leave it here, because each one of us has a specific way of communicating with the Lord. But if you want to accompany me, it will be a pleasure, feel free to speak it in your own way.
Beloved God, first of all I come before You to ask forgiveness for my mistakes, failures, attitudes, thoughts and actions that displeased You. I know that I need to improve, I still have a lot to learn, and this will only be possible if I am walking on Your path, together with You. I’m sorry if I ever questioned Your greatness or thought that You weren’t seeing my pain, I know that You are faithful, the one who is not faithful is me, for I am a human being full of flaws.
Father, it is not easy to go through the trials I am in, but as Your Son said, in this world we will have afflictions, but He has already won for us on the cross. All I have is the Lord and that is enough for me, for He knows my needs better than I do.
I am small next to You, so I make the Lord my refuge. Strengthen my faith, my mind, clothe me in your armor so that with you I can overcome the evil day. My God, yours is the power, the glory and the honor forever. It is in the name of Jesus that I pray, give thanks and ask that my words may reach the Lord like a sweet perfume!
Prayer of a mere servant of God
God bless you!
