Therapist Catherine Hart Weber offers reflective prayers to give us a restful spirit and get us into the presence of God. Day 14 of 21 Days of Prayer + Fasting 2019.
“God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans.” (Romans 8:27, MSG)
During amazing and difficult times, we pray our deepest heartfelt prayers—those things we think about a lot, don’t talk about
Sometimes we just need endurance, healing, belief, hope or gratitude. When there are no words, or only a few, the Holy Spirit helps us.
Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me.
Heal. Save. Guide.
Come, Lord Jesus.
Your Will be done.
Your Kingdom come.
Then we quietly rest in the presence of God, aiming at union with Him and being restored by Jesus. We listen for the still, small voice of love, assuring us:
Don’t be afraid.
Live in Me.
I am with you always.
You are loved.
I am Your Shepherd.
I’ve got this.
I will make a way.
I will complete the good work I have begun.
