Lord, let my heart find rest in the sweet nearness of Your presence. I am tired and worn by the tumultuous turn of events. I am perplexed by the unforeseen circumstances that now surround me. When my soul is despairing, help me trust in You. When my heart is crushed, lead me to the place of healing. Jesus, before You and only You, I bow my fragile heart. Before You and only You, I expose my vulnerable estate. Take me to the light of eternity where hope prevails and sorrows cease. Remind me who I am in You, Lord. Let me not be defined by this world. Let me not succumb to the pressure of another’s opinion. Father, I empty myself before You so that I can be replenished with heaven’s contents. Make me a better image-bearer tomorrow than I am today. Make me a stronger warrior in the future than I am right now. Holy Spirit, fill me to overflow, cleansing me of the sorrow that veils the true light of Christ existing within me. Under the power of Your Word in Isaiah 46:4 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I humbly pray.
Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He,
I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
Isaiah 46:4, NIV
