This continues to be a difficult year. So many things have tried to put me in the valley. I hurt.
I have tried to be there for family and friends as they have experienced some of the worst moments of their lives. I hurt. I feel the pain. I feel the hopelessness. I feel the tears.
Last night and this morning, I have been crying out to God. I hurt. I feel the pain.
I did what I was told to do. I prayed. I fasted. I cried. I encouraged. But....I hurt...
This morning God spoke to me. He said "assume the position." I knew immediately what he was telling me. Give it to Him. Get on my knees. Lay prostrate before Him. Give it to Him.
He knows I hurt. He knows I feel the pain. He knows I cry. He hears my prayers. He is giving me strength to do His will when others hurt. He said "give it to me." Assume the position.
Prayer: Thank you Lord for never leaving nor forsaking your children. Thank you Lord for using your servants to pray, cry, encourage, and hope for those when they are in the valley. Thank you for strength, peace, and your mercy and grace as your servants do your will. In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: Yea, thou I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; thy rod and thy staff comfort me. Psalm 23:4 KJV
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
