Please, help me stay encouraged. I feel discouraged. I want to feel sorry for myself. I work hard and try to do all the right things. However, lately, everything I try fails. I am down on myself, Father.
I have grown weary. I was hoping you could reach out with your mighty right hand and help me, Father. Please give me an encouraging word. May I open the Bible to the exact spot you want me to read that will provide me with peace and wisdom. Show me a sign Father, a butterfly, a red bird, or a penny on the sidewalk that speaks to my heart and lets me know you are near holding me up. Let me dream sweet dreams of encouragement that I can reflect on in the morning and know you were with me through the night to strengthen and renew me.
My prayer is that you make my crooked path straight. I will gratefully accept your gracious blessings. I am ready for success. Lord, help me see the sunshine of peace again.
In Jesus Name,
Amen, Amen, Amen
