How to pray for endurance when you're wiped out




Lord Jesus,

I'm so, so tired.

You understand why and how and what's next.

Please help me to endure with patience the task you've called me to.

Your will doesn't seem attainable.

I'm insecure and unsettled.

I'm overwhelmed and uneasy.

I don't know how to endure.

I just want rest.

And I want answers.

Please fill me with your power instead of my own.

Build my faith during this weary time.

Take this emptiness and use it to glorify yourself.

It will be so obvious that you alone are at work through my life.

I am incapable of greatness.

You alone satisfy my desire,

and you alone can create something meaningful out of weakness.

Forgive me for trying to accomplish things in my own strength.

Thank you for this exhaustion.

I give it to you and ask you to resurrect me.

In Jesus' name and because He is LIFE,

Amen.


"Let’s rid ourselves of every obstacle and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let’s run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking only at Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:1-2)
