“And if we know that He hears us; whatever we ask; we know we have what we asked of Him.” 1 John 5:15
I come to you right now, asking for faith. In a world that is so far from you, I am prone to wander.
Help me to find faith even in the midst of trouble and chaos. Help me to draw close to you and to have the desire to seek you in all that I do.
I sometimes easily doubt the love that you have for me and the truth that you have revealed to me through your Word.
I find myself constantly questioning your ways, although I wish that I wouldn’t. God, I admit that I often want to be in control and see everything as you do.
Sometimes it’s so hard for me to simply trust in what I cannot see. But I know that’s exactly what you call me to do. And I know I can’t do it by my own strength.
Pick me up oh Lord when I waiver and begin to fall weak in my faith. Help me to understand and appreciate your perfect and loving will for my life and my situation.
Jesus, do a mighty work in me. Help me to walk by faith and not by sight. Even if I can’t see the outcome, or even if the outcome seems bleak, help me to believe that you are unconditionally sovereign and good.
Give me confidence that though I may not understand what you’re doing now, someday it will all make sense in context of your bigger plan.
All of these things are working together for my good and your glory.
Jesus, I want to run to you like a child with no fear of the future. In spite of all my fears and inhibitions, help me to be faithful, just as you are faithful.
Be my hope, and be the anchor of my soul. You are my everything Father for I pray these things in Jesus most precious name - Amen.
