Today’s Prayer

My Father in heaven, beneath Your great Name I take refuge from the storms of life. Help me to feel Your nearness when loneliness assails me with doubt. Remind me that You have not forsaken me when all others have. Jesus, You are the peace that calms the storm of emotions. You are the rock upon which my identity stands. Let the cries of my heart waft like incense before You. Let the aches of my soul heal beneath Your compassionate sight. Deliver me through the night seasons of life as only You can, Lord. Help me to not lose heart because You are the One who holds my heart in Your hands. Remind me that I am safe. I need not be afraid of the one who taunts me with condemnation. When my strength for battle has drained away, let me be still and know that You are my God. When my words fail me and I am choked by silence, let Your Word be the only truth that meets me in the silent thoughts of my mind. Thank You, Father, that I can lean into You when I cannot stand on my own. Under the Word You have given in Isaiah 43:2 and the authority of Christ, I pray.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned,
and flame will not scorch you.
Isaiah 43:2, WEB
