Prayer to Overcome Weakness

Father, help us to live a more courageous life, and not let our perceived weaknesses stop us from accomplishing great things with You.  

Just as Moses, a stutterer, argued with God about confronting Pharoah, (Exodus 4:11-13) we argue with You all the time about assignments You have for us.  We think because that is an area of weakness for us we shouldn't do it.  When actually that's exactly what we should do!  

Lord, help us to trust that You are more than enough to cover our weaknesses.  The promise you made to Moses, "Now go! I will be with you..." (Exodus 4:12a) extends to us too!  

Help us to have the guts to face the areas where we are weak instead of avoiding them, knowing You are with us. -In Jesus' name, Amen

Prayer for Understanding

Father, remind us we don't have to hide from You when we have thoroughly messed up. These are the moments we RUN TO YOU! 

Help us to get it stuck in our heads that there is nothing we can do to get You to love us any more, or any less! God, show us how to not be afraid of You, but to find joy when we read about You, pray to You, and sing songs about You. Lord, help us to delight in You. 

For Your word says, "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." -Psalm 37:4

-In Jesus' name, Amen
