I’m so thankful you stopped by for prayer. I truly believe prayer changes things because it involves a conversation and a communion with God. He is capable, near, and close to the brokenhearted. I know there are times when you feel like He doesn’t hear, or that your faith is as small as a speck of sand. Be encouraged. God does see. He does hear. He understands your needs far better than I do.
I’m just a girl who believes God wants to do amazing stuff in you, in me, in this world. So take a risk today and share your prayer request in the comments section. Together, we’ll create a really cool prayer group. I will pray for you right after your comment, so check back to read your you-shaped prayer.
Now for a question:
Have you ever felt helpless?
That all you can do is holler a few words to the heavens and ask for simple help? I’ve been in that place more times than I can count. It’s a good place. A hard place. A needy place. Where we realize that we can’t do everything. Usually during those times, my prayers sound a lot like this one:
We can’t control our friends or frenemies or enemies.
We can’t even control our own lives.
We can’t control what God will do.
We can’t control how long we’ll grieve.
We can’t control our health or lack of it.
We can’t control our children or spouse.
We can’t control our circumstances.
We can’t control the timing of things.
We can’t control money or bills.
And sometimes life careens out of control and all we can do is yell “Help.”
If you’re in that space today, I give you permission to share your YELP prayer request in the comments section. May Jesus come to your rescue today!
