Dear Lord, you are the vine and the source from which all graces flow. I ask to receive these graces and the joy you promise to your followers. I pray that I will stay connected to you at all times.
Lord, I know that there is a purpose for my struggles and while I may not understand it I ask for the grace to remain faithful and united to you no matter what. Apart from you there is no life. Help me to appreciate my place in your plan and to carry out your will for my life joyfully. I am completely dependent upon you for this joy and I ask to receive it now.
Please pour out your Holy Spirit upon me, and everyone near and dear to me, and refresh our tired souls. Make us new in heart, mind, body and spirit. Clear the path for us to walk with confidence in You. In Jesus name. Amen.
This prayer is from our latest book, "Strength For The Weary, Finding Grace in Times of Trial."
Our Lord knows our burdens, and He doesn't expect us to carry them alone.
