In our lives, there are many changing seasons. We go from feeling joyful and close to the Lord, to grieving and feeling like he is distant. We wrestle with our doubts and questions, wondering if God even hears us or if he is even real. Our faith decreases when we look around us, not up God and His purpose. No Christian goes through this life without feeling weak in their faith at times, but we all can take comfort in knowing our God is Immanuel– He is with us in every season, whether good or bad.
May this prayer grow your faith, encourage your weary heart, bring you hope, and remind you of God’s constant presence and endless faithfulness.
Thank you for helping us to make it through this difficult year. Thank you that you’ve carried us through the uncertainty of deep waters, through the flames of trials, and through the pain of hard losses. We are constantly aware of how much we need you, your grace, your strength, your power working through even the toughest days.
Help us to keep our focus first on you this season. Please forgive us for giving too much time and attention to other things, for looking to other people before coming to you first. Help us to reflect again, on you. Thank you that you came to give new life, peace, hope, and joy. Thank you that your power is made perfect in our weakness.
Help us to remember that the gift of Christ, Immanuel, is our greatest treasure. Fill us with your joy and the peace of your Spirit. Direct our hearts and minds towards you. Thank you for your reminder that both in seasons of celebration and in seasons of brokenness, you’re still with us. For you never leave us. Thank you for your daily powerful Presence in our lives, that we can be assured your heart is towards us, your eyes are over us, and your ears are open to our prayers. Thank you that you surround us with favor as with a shield, and we are safe in your care.
We choose to press in close to you today, and keep you first in our hearts and lives. Without you we would surely fail, but with you, there is great hope. Thank you for your healing power, thank you for bringing us into this new season up ahead. We look forward to all that You still have in store.
In Jesus’ Name,
