Prayer for Strength

Prayer for Strength
Charles Ferbet '21

“I have promised to meet all your needs according to my glorious riches. Your deepest, most constant need is for my peace. I have planted peace in the garden of your heart, where I live; but there are weeds growing there too: pride, worry, selfishness, unbelief. I am the gardener, and I am working to rid your heart of those weeds. I do my work in various ways. When you sit quietly with me, I shine the light of my presence directly into your heart. In this heavenly light, peace grows abundantly and weeds shrivel up. I also send trials into your life. When you trust me in the midst of trouble, peace flourishes and weeds die away. Thank me for troublesome situations; the peace they can produce far outweighs the trials you endure.” 

- by Sarah Young in "Jesus Calling"

Lord, my heart is heavy and I am feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. I feel like I am carrying my burdens alone. I am not sure how to let you carry my burdens, so please show me how. Let me be rested and refreshed.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
