Prayer to Get Through

Father, help us see the beautiful that you have waiting for us on the other side of the brutal.  

For your word says, "Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." -Psalm 23:4

Or Lord, remind us today that You don't put us in the dark valley and you don't leave us there either!  You get us THROUGH it while comforting us in the process.  We imagine you taking us by the hand and saying, "come on my child, let's get You out of this, I've got something great on the other side that will reward You for obeying me."  

-In Jesus' name, Amen.

Prayer to Triumph

Father, remind us today what we can conquer when we rely on Your strength instead of our own!  

For if "David triumphed over Goliath with only a sling and a stone, for he had no sword."  (1 Samuel 17:50) What is it that we can triumph over by relying on You?

Oh God, give us David's perspective on our Goliath's in life.  

Take what we think are weaknesses and defeats and remind us that we have the same power and strength available to us that David did to conquer them.   Lord, remind us that we can triumph too!  

-In Jesus' name, Amen.
