Today’s Prayer

Lord, I come to You in my agonizing grief. I kneel before You when the perplexities of life overwhelm me. Nothing makes sense without You in me, Jesus. My mind is too often led toward the umbrella of my circumstances which provides no shelter from the storm. Lead me to find solace and refuge beneath the umbrella of Your Word, Father. Your sympathizing heart is a great comfort to me in my distress. Your foundational truth is a great anchor when the storms threaten me with a false sense of danger. Remind me to drink from the fountain of salvation when my soul is parched and thirsty. Take me to the place where Your daily manna is readily available for my consumption. Thwart the sense of lack that deceives me. I have enough in Christ. The riches of Your inheritance are beyond worldly comprehension. The joy of satisfaction is not rooted in the things of this world. Help me dress in the robe of Your righteousness, my Lord. Let me not reveal the nakedness of my iniquity when You have offered me such sweet and glorious covering. Let me bow in gratitude for the costly sacrifice which has made me a joint heir in Christ Jesus. Lord, I come to You in Your amazing grace. I kneel before You where the purpose of life is overwhelmingly revealed. Under the Word given in Isaiah 12:2-3 and the authority of Christ, I pray.

“Behold, God is my salvation;
    I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the Lord God is my strength and my song,
    and He has become my salvation.”
 With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
Isaiah 12:2-3, ESV
