Prayer for the Weary to Wake

Father, breathe life into us! Oh we are so weary from winter, and hardened from heartache.  Breath life into our dry bones... 

"‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again!" -Ezekiel 37:4-6. 

Lord, help us live again. Wake up the weary! Help us to live the abundant life You have planed for us, loving others like we've never been hurt.  -In Jesus' name, Amen

Prayer to End "Winter"

Father, remind us that winter does end...eventually! 

Oh Lord, help us to see beyond our "winter"! Some days it feels like the situation we are in will never improve; a time of financial lack, loneliness, depression, or sickness.  We fear our "winter" will never end, but that's a lie.

Your word says, "For everything there is a season...

A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance...Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time." -Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4.

With ever glimpse of Spring, a tiny bud on a barren tree, a sprout from a bulb forging through the once frozen ground, remind us that our Winter will end, it always does! And YOU will bring forth new life! Oh Lord, make it happen!  End our "winters"! Bring forth the laughing and the dancing, soon!

One day the sun will shine again! Spring is coming!

-In Jesus name, Amen
