A Prayer For Persistence

A Prayer For Persistence - Dear Purposeful Woman.png

Heavenly Father,

Not a day goes by where I don’t secretly dream about the life I know I was destined to live or the impact I was created to make.

Secretly, I wonder if those dreams will come true.

Secretly, I doubt. Secretly, I fear. Secretly, I worry.

All these secret thoughts eat away at my confidence as I weigh my ability to overcome life's many trials and obstacles. Lord, I ask You to renew my mind and spirit. Whisper Your truth in the secret places where I struggle to welcome Your light.

I know I must persist, but it’s hard. I know I mustn’t give up, but I’m scared. Scared I will fall without the strength to get back up. I am afraid, but I know I mustn’t give up.

As I release my fears and worries into Your hands, I pray that You fill me with Your Holy Spirit and continue to show me the way. Continue to nudge me when I stop and hide. Continue to guide me into the unknown, the uncomfortable places that scare me the most and require me to be courageous.

I want to grow past my fears.

I want to stand tall even when I am scared.

I want my life to radiate your purpose.

And though I have my human issues, my human heart and fears, I pray that Your supernatural Spirit consumes every part of me that isn’t aligned with Your truth.

Make me over Lord, make me stronger in You Lord and whenever I am on the brink of giving up, help me to persist with purpose.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.AMEN!

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. 2 Chronicles 15:7
