A prayer from weakness


Dear Lord in heaven,

I feel weak today.
So, so weak.
Emotionally,
physically,
mentally,
spiritually.

I feel insufficient.
Not enough.
Less-than.

I think you call this a strength
because I'll to turn to you in my desperation just to survive.
In my frustration, I might actually listen on you.
Wait on you.
Pray to you.
Obey you.
Trust you.

This process makes me stronger
because it gives your strength a chance to work in me
and change me.
You make me enough, just as I am,
when I have you.
I can do hard things when you're the strength behind my obedience.

Thank you.
You are so gracious and merciful.
You love me, bless me, and guide me.
I am in awe of how you work
and why you decide to work in me and through me.

I praise your name, O Most High.
In Jesus' powerful name,
Amen.


"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
