A Prayer For Persistence
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
