Prayer for Today

My stuggle is real

August 10, 2016

Father, there is no one like you. No one loves me, cares for me or looks out for me the way you do. No one could ever do half as much for me as you’ve done and continue to do. I know that this statement is true but sometimes, when I’m faced with difficult decisions, situation or circumstances, my humanity comes to the surface and I find myself doubting you and that you care for me.

I know your word says that you haven’t given me the spirit of fear but sometimes I am fearful. When I am dealing with the illness of a loved one, I am fearful of losing them. When I am faced with the loss of income, I am fearful of losing my home, car or other possessions that I need. When I’m confronted with the loss of a friend because they don’t want to hear the truth, I become fearful because my relationship with them is important to me. It is during these times that I realize my humanity has overridden my spirituality.

I know that as long as I am alive a certain level of fear is going to surface from time to time but, I refuse to allow fear to control my mind or my emotions. That’s why I run to you and find shelter in your word.

Your word reminds me that you are Elohim, the creator of heaven and earth. You are the God of everyone and everything! Nothing is greater than You. No illness, no financial shortfall; nothing is greater than You!

When I run to your word my fears are relieved. Your word reminds me of your unfailing love towards me and your greatness. Thank you for being my fortress, my refuge in difficult times and my very present help in the time of trouble. Thank you! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
