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

A prayer from weakness

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
