A prayer to soar



Don't you know? Haven't you heard? The Lord is an everlasting God. That means you can pray with confidence and trust that God will hear you, be involved in your life, and carry you through your greatest and smallest trials. You can ask God to help you soar like an eagle.


Oh Lord,

You have no beginning or end--

You are uncontrollable and unfathomable.

You are my Creator and sustainer.

You never get tired or weary like I do--

I won't ever understand that.

You give strength to me when I'm weary and increase my power.

When I place my hope in you,

you will renew my strength like a soaring eagle

or a marathon racer.

I won't pass out from exhaustion.

You have me.

Your arms are underneath me.

You carry me when I can't walk.

You support me when I crumble.

You direct me when I wander, lost.

You speak to me in the stillness when I listen.

You promise your involvement and protection because that's who you are.

I can trust you whenever my world goes dark.

So Lord God, help me soar. 

Lift me up and send me out to accomplish the plans you've laid out for me. 

Keep me from planning the end--

Only help me be faithful to fly wherever you send me.

In Jesus' name,

Amen.

Isaiah 40:28-31


"Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."--Isaiah 40:31
