Have you ever felt a restlessness but you're unsure why? And not understanding the reason frustrates you beyond measure?

Do you ever get this feeling of unrest you can’t seem to shake? And you’re not sure exactly where it’s coming from or how to process it? It can be frustrating when you can’t pinpoint the reason for the feeling.

Is it a prompt to make a change or a distraction to prevent success? Either way, I believe it’s a call to run to Jesus. Recently I felt this way and the best way to handle it? Pray. Today I’m sharing this prayer with you.

A Prayer for When I Feel Restless

Dear Father,
I wish I could explain it-
this stirring in my heart…
this questioning within my spirit…
this searching of my soul.
Jesus, I’m feeling restless.
While you know me
Even more than I know myself,
I know this much-
In this moment I must pursue you.
Is this unrest a temptation
to disrupt precious peace?
Or is it an appeal
to embrace hallowed awakening?
Please lead me to an understanding;
Grant me wisdom to walk your way.
And with our steps in sync,
I believe the bumpy walk will transform
Into a beautiful dance of clarity.
Thank you, Jesus.
