Helpless | a prayer


Dear God,
Not really sure how to start this prayer.
You know all things, so of course you know my heart, and what I'm feeling right now.
A lot is happening in my life.  
And I completely trust You -
I know that everything is happening for a reason.
I don't see that reason, though
And everything just really hurts right now.
Give me strength to get through this.
Grant me wisdom in knowing what to do.
Send me little messages of Your love.
And remind me that You're always near.
Thank You, Abba.
I love you.
In Jesus' Name...Amen.


My beloved daughter,
I understand your emotions and heart
Because I made you.
Every part about you is something that I thought up,
That I created.
I am glad you trust Me.
I have much planned for your life
Some of it may be difficult
But because you have given Me your hand
I promise to walk with you through it all.
I give you My strength
I am blessing you with wisdom
Look around you at every beautiful thing
And see My love for you manifested in it.
I am always near you, daughter.
Never fear the tide.
And when you are too weak to walk,
I will carry you.
I love you, Daughter.
And because I can swear by none higher, I swear by My Self.
All this I promise you, in My Name.
