Pray When It’s Hard To Pray



Most Gracious Heavenly Father,

Encircle my mind. I have so many worries, doubts, fears and regrets to sift through. Please bring stillness and calm, remind me that you hold all these things for me and took them to the cross so that I might have peace. Encircle my heart, for I am wounded, broken-hearted and empty. Please bring a new fullness, pour in your unconditional and extravagant love so that I might know new restoration and healing.

Encircle my soul, surround the heaviness of doubt, the weight of the burdens I carry and the ties that bind. With your presence, fill my soul with heavens light, with eternal promises and new faith. Encircle my body, for I am tired, worn down with ailments and in need of deep restoration. Come with power, that I might emerge refreshed and ready to walk again.

In Jesus’ precious Name, we pray!

    • Then dear brother, I’ll be in there praying as well! I’m a strong and fervent believer in intercessory prayer and I don’t need to know the circumstances because our Heavenly Father already does! I pray for ALL the ministries I’ve been blessed to come across, but I’ll add a specific for you and your ministry to my list! God bless Jim. Stay strong, don’t doubt and we’ll agree for God’s perfect will together!! Love you in Christ my Brother!
