Hey there, Friends! It’s Friday once again and I’m hoping you’ll check in to let us know how the Bible Reading is coming along. I know some of you are reading and haven’t had a few minutes to check in on Fridays- that’s ok! But if you have a minute and can leave a little encouragement for someone else, then fabulous! Just in case any of you feel like giving up on this challenge, I’ve written a prayer to carry you through. And if God should stumble someone upon this prayer for any other reason, may the words carry you through one more time, to one more solution, and for one more day.
A Prayer for When You Feel Like Giving Up
Sometimes the day can’t pass quickly enough…
While others fly by at lightning speed.
I can’t seem to keep up
With the pace of this world.
My heart is weary and my spirit is weak.
I’m trying my hardest
To take the next step
To keep trying
To move on.
But between me and you, Lord,
I feel like giving up.
Help me remember the reason I began
Help me see the purpose behind Your plan
Provide the necessary grace
Keep me set upon Your face
To find strength for that next step
To discover faith to keep trying
To pause for this moment
And then move on.
In Jesus’ Holy name, Amen.
