Friday, November 5
my heart is heavy for those hurting this morning. it has been for a while now. i have prayed this prayer to you many times, Lord. i don't want my faith in you to waver for one minute, i don't want my confusion to turn into questioning. i don't always know why you allow things to happen the way you do, Lord, and a lot of times i cry out and wish your plan would have been different, so very different. i pray that you turn the mourning, the sadness and the sorrow into praise to you; our King. because you are worthy of it. i pray that you take the burdens of your people and carry them. i pray for the comfort and peace that only you can give. i pray that those who see injustices taking place will not question you, will not to question your greater plan. i pray that they will see you for who you really are: a God of compassion and a God of love. i pray that their joy, my joy, our joy is in you and only you. that nothing could ever steal my joy away, for it is grounded in my everlasting Saviour. i pray for the burdens, and for those roads that we never wanted to walk, for you to turn them into the times that our faith was most strengthened in you Lord.
