Much to Pray About!
“Into Thy hands I commend my spirit.”
I am in a season where I feel there are not enough hours in the day to transfer from my heart to God’s heart everything I long for, worry about, and thankful for. I confess there have been times in my life that God was the last place I would go with the “invisible” burdens weighing on my heart. I have been known to muscle-arm my destiny. The result of course is no peace. The Christian author Agnes Sanford experienced a vision of Jesus standing with his hands tied behind his back unable to do anything. She said by not asking for the small, the grand, the miraculous, you are keeping God from doing something remarkable in your life. God wants to be in the sacred details.
Nothing is too insignificant or too “over-the-top” to bring to God. Enjoy the peace knowing you don’t have to do it alone! God has you.
Holy and Loving God,
I come to You because You loved me first.
I come with questions the world cannot answer.
I come to to lay before You
my disappointments, my doubts, my dreams,
my soul longings.
I come with a rosary of names and circumstances that could use Your grace.
I come for mercy because in some conversation
I allowed my ego to speak over my soul.
I come because I don’t want to be afraid anymore.
And You are the only one who can smooth my edges serene.
I come to feel something exquisite,
not of this world,
but of heaven.
I come because suddenly things seem possible when You are involved.
I come because why would I not come?
You are the source of all that is good and miraculous,
hopeful and redemptive.
And, You love me.

I too have tried many times to power through with my own strength and feel exhausted at the end of the day. This prayer is just what I needed. Thank you!
