Growing Through Prayer – For the Burdened and Burned Out

Growing Through Prayer - For the Burdened and Burned Out

Here I am, again. The burden on my back feels heavy from carrying it for so long. I’ve asked for your wisdom and help so many times—no part of the struggle is secret from you. Today I feel weary of praying. Waiting. Wondering what’s to come.

Thank you for your love that’s stronger than my need. I can’t wear out your patience. I could never ask for more than you’re able to supply. You promise to wrap me in comfort and security as my Father. You tuck my sad, tired self under your wing and do the fighting for me. You invite me to simply rest in you.

Give me faith to stop worrying and trying so hard. Quiet me down so I quit pushing for quick fixes. Teach me to be still and know, really know, that you are God. Keep me steady on my feet by believing you’re on my side. Help me trust you for every little detail of my heart’s hope and desire. I want to “grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that [I] may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:18-19)

Thank you for drawing me in to talk to you all the time. Transform this hard, painful road into a beautiful gift as you open my eyes to your love in it. I’m yours.



Now this I know:
The Lord gives victory to his anointed.
He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary
with the victorious power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.
(Psalm 20:6-8)
