You Share in our Pains

Dear Jesus,

Death is such a horrible, horrible tragedy to face.

It hurts the people who are alive in such a profound way.

I pray for all the families who are greiving and mourning because they have lost a loved one.

No-one can quite understand the pain of losing someone unless experienced.

It is a paniful feeling; almost like sharing in the experience of death itself.

Lord I ask that you will comfort those families and that this tragedy will not change them in a negative way but that they will look to you knowing that you are even more closer at a time like this.

You share in our pains and our struggles especially death.

In your Name,

Amen

Let Us not Forget

Dear Jesus,

Hearts are still in pain over the lives that have been lost over the past few weeks.

Even though it is in the past, it all has left a deep wound in the hearts of many people especially relatives, children and significant others.

People who are still tryng to heal, cope with life and come to terms with what happened.

No one talks about it anymore, no one is standing up anymore or protesting, complaining, shouting, crying, hurting.

Let us not forget about it Lord. Let us not become the crowd. Let us help those where help is needed.

And please Lord come through for those people who are still in pain. Grow them so that they become great victors and not victims. Grow them to make a solid impact on the world for the rest of their lives.

For you said that in our weaknesses you make us stronger. Although our trials are hard to bear, you help us to bear them.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

Strengthen Me

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for helping me make throug this week. I dont know how I have made it.

I feel like I am at the point of giving up. I am certain that whatever is keeping me going is something beyond myself.

The next few weeks are going to be difficult and hard Lord. I am going to feel like giving up and throwing in the towel.

But just like you strengthened me to make it through is the same way you will strengthen me to make it through the rest.

Encourage others in the same way you have for me Lord. And help me to cultivate a taste for you.

In your Name,

Amen

Bring Us Home

Dear Jesus,

I want to say a special prayer right now. I think it is the right time.

My heart goes out to the people caught up in the terror attack in Manchester. There families and friends.

Lord I dont understand why people would go to such lengths to prove a point. Lengths that affect lives and destroy families.

But Lord, you know all, and you see all and you understand everything. You said that all these things would happen and that we should not be alarmed.

Evil and hatred for each other would increase. And with this you are preparing to come back and take us back home. Lord I know that your heart is eager to bring us home.

I pray that in the meantime, keep us strong and committed to you.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Perfect in Weakness

Dear Jesus,

Its been a tough few weeks. Everything just seems to be overwhelming.

Its hard to find the energy to keep up and respond to life’s demands and duties.

If there was ever a time where I needed supernatural power to make it through it is now.

You said that your strength is made perfect in weakness and with that we can do all things through you who gives us the strength to do so.

I beleive that you are giving us your strength and supporting us.

In your Name,

Amen

The Right Track

Dear Jesus,

Im fed up. Fed up of work. Fed up of life. Sometimes i’m even fed up of people.

Did you feel this way. Did you feel like giving up and not caring? Did you feel like just doing what you wanted to do?

That is how I feel right now. And I feel that that is what I am doing.

Lord I need encouragement and strength to be focused again. 

To go back on the right track that you intended for me.

In your Name,

Amen

What Next Lord?

Dear Jesus,

As the years go by we are getting older, we are gaining more knowledge about the world.We are learning what its like and how to relate to others.

It sure is a journey. A whirlwind journey full of events.

But thank you Lord, for blessing us with life, strength and your grace in our lives as we live them.

What next Lord?

In your Name,

Amen
