A Prayer to Survive
Lord, I’m exhausted and unsure of when my life’s “marathon” will come to a finish. In an effort to escape this ordeal, I feel as though I have been running for ages. Help me to stop attempting to flee my agony and instead run the race you have put before me with endurance. I am aware that I will finally triumph over my struggles in life because of you. I am aware that nothing in this world can sever my connection to your unwavering love. Please shower me with your love today and give me the stamina to get through this ordeal. I appreciate your unending devotion to me. And thanks for my everlasting crown of delight in your kingdom!
Lord, I’m worn out. My motivation is flagging, and my energy is waning. And I really need you right now. To get back on track, I need your fortitude and your innovative style. The joy of the Lord is my strength, according to your word. If that’s the case, then I require your delight to replenish all of my mind, body, and soul’s worn-out components.
Sometimes life’s pressures force me into a corner and leave me unable to move forward. I sometimes feel frozen when a hundred people yell my name because I don’t know where to go. Lord, please assist me to finish the race well and find courage in that quiet, safe haven you have under the protection of the All-Powerful.
When I’m tempted to give in to bad things or when selfishness clings to my clothing and won’t let go, I need your power to say no. When timidity and fear urge me to reject my heart’s desires, I need your courage to say “yes.” I need your power to extend love to everyone around me and to those who are close to me. When won’t I require your might, God?
You are my rock, and I run to you today hoping that you will help me lift my heavy arms, give me energy for the responsibilities you have given me, and absorb all the weakness in my life with your joy, giving me strength again. I don’t want to be confined and constrained by my shortcomings. I’m done with pathetic attempts. Lord, I don’t simply want to soar; I want to mount up with wings like an eagle. I desire to soar.
Lord, replenish my strength. Fill me with your extraordinary strength to get beyond every challenge in my way. I can succeed if I keep my eyes on you, Lord, and you walk with me and work through me. Lord, I am grateful! in the name of Jesus, Amen.
