Restore Me…a prayer


restore copy


I wake up this morning and feel you gently pull me to life. Last night...I felt broken, used up and brittle...unable to rise above myself. There is still weariness in my muscles, I can see it in my eyes, I know it seeks a home in my spirit.

I am reminded of your Word of truth.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he restores my soul. Psalm 23:1-3

Can there be quiet in the storm I walk through? Can there be restoration in the midst of a ongoing battle, one...I'm afraid of losing? Can my heart beat with life again?

Again...your Word.

Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. Jeremiah 17:14

This prayer, I offer to you my Father. As an offering of praise, as an offering of surrender and trust. I am are mine...I am in good hands.

In Jesus name I pray...Amen

I echo your prayer and feelings.

God spoke this to me yesterday, "I, the Lord, do not change..." Mal 3:6

I will fix my eyes solely on Him and trust Him to guide me through the storms of life.

God bless, my brother!

Great prayer! The storms rarely change until our perspective does. To find God in the midst of a storm is to find a peace and joy that can't be measured anywhere in time.
