Prayer for Today

Jeremiah 29 11

September 2, 2016

Father, I know your word says that you know the plans you have for me; plans to do me good and not to harm me, plans to give me a hope and a future hope. This isn’t a promise just for me, but for everyone who calls on the name of Jesus. If I’m being honest; today I don’t feel like your plan is working very well.

I see murder and mayhem, heartache and hardship and I wonder could this really be your plan? I see people at each other throats over ideological differences. I see hateful language being thrown around in social media and on television, so our young people can see it and think this is how reasonably minded adults should act.

Young people dying at the hands of other young people, older people living in poverty and people could help won’t because it may cost them something. Forgive me, but is this really a plan for my good? I feel like David when he said, “Why, O Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in the time of trouble?”

I will trust in your unfailing love; my heart will rejoice in your coming salvation. I know that at the right time and in the right season, if I don’t give up, you will bless me and others in the body of Christ with everything that is rightfully ours to inherit. I will not weaver in my trust of you, but I will stand firm and see the deliverance of your children.

Thank you for being a big enough God for me to be honest with in my times of uncertainty, weakness and momentary despair. I will wait on you. I will be of good courage and I know you will strengthen my heart. In Jesus name. Amen.
