I always try to wait on the Lord before I post anything–even if it is an oldie but goodie.
Today and tonight as I sought His choice for your encouragement, He’s continued to tell me to write a prayer. I’ve told Him that seems too simple, but He continues to lay this on my heart, so here it goes. Grab my hand.
My heart is broken. So many good things swirl around me, but there are so many hurting and suffering in this world. Please call the waters to recede for those flooded from the hurricane. And Lord, please provide help to the people of Haiti. They have suffered so much. I pray for the spirits of darkness to be broken over that land and the light of Your Spirit to shine out the powers of evil oppressing those people. And Lord, I lift up our country that seems so lost, declining morally every day. The political state is a mess, Lord. We need your hand! We need your intervention. Oh, Lord, intervene in this presidential election.
Our only hope is you. We do wait on you. Your power, goodness, kindness, justice, judgement, and grace. I pray for each pair of eyes reading this prayer, and each heart that beats in front of the screen, that you oh Lord would be their Almighty. May they know Your Spirit and Heart. Let us lean on You with our ear up against your heartbeat. May ours beat with the same rhythm and wisdom and love–chessed love–that of kindness and mercy bound by a covenant–as Yours does.
Help us trust you as we wait. Don’t let us do anything without Your nod.
So, that’s the start, but He’s nudging me to ask you to add on to the prayer.
I’d love for you to add onto the prayer by leaving a comment. This way, we are praying together even though we’re miles apart. I’m holding your hand. What’s on your heart to pray?
