When you're facing a new, scary challenge


Oh, Lord,

I don't now what's going to happen next,

but there are some scary options sitting in front of me,

taunting my thoughts and terrifying my heart.

I feel like I'm wilting on the inside:

My spirit grows faint within me

and my heart feels dismayed (Psalm 143:4).

I know that you are good and that you only do good to your people.

I remember your faithfulness--

you do not bring judgment down on us like you should; 

no one stands before you righteous (Psalm 143:2).

I trust you because you have always protected me.

I remember all the times you have rescued me and comforted me.

I reach out for you like a thirsty soul in the desert (Psalm 143:5-6).

Lord, come to me and satisfy my longing.

Quench my fear.

Renew my spirit.

Do not hide your face from me.

Every morning, remind me of your unfailing love (Psalm 143:7-8).

Show me the way I should go.

I only trust you.

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God.

Holy Spirit, level the ground before me and lead me into your truth (Psalm 143:8-10).

I will trust in you.

I will tell of your mighty acts on on my behalf to future generations.

I will speak of your splendor (Psalm 144:4-5).

I love you, and I trust you.

In Jesus' name,

Amen.


Prayer taken from Psalm 143 and 144.
