A prayer for the weary.

Father God, someone out there just needs a break. They take three steps forward and get pushed three steps back. Progression seems to be further and further away, God. When they try to do what’s right, everything seems to go wrong. They’re beginning to feel like their best isn’t good enough, and they’re weary of life. God, I pray that you breathe peace their way, Jesus. Restore their hope. Restore their faith. Lord, you said in John 16:33, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” You told us life wouldn’t be easy, but you also said we could still be at peace in the midst of our troubles because of you! You overcame the world, and that makes us over-comers! Father, restore the joy of their salvation. Revive their soul with your Holy Spirit. Let whoever this person is, know that, the break they need is in their praise. I pray that they just take a praise break every time they feel weary God. Every time they feel defeated, I pray that they praise their way to their victory. I pray that they will not allow life to steal their praise, for you are a good, good Father who provides for us daily. Help whoever’s going through to know that it’s not about what they go through, but it’s about what they decide to do while they’re going through that matters! Father, I pray that they allow your light to shine through them. Your Spirit is the break they need. More of the things of this world can’t satisfy like you, Lord. Help them to realize that, and to trust you. You are yet making a way, and haven’t failed yet. Father, remind them that sometimes progression doesn’t manifest physically at first. Sometimes, our spirit man and mental state has to get right before we see the results in the natural. Help them to see the progress their making that leads to everlasting life. Shift their focus from being caught up in these temporal things. Remind them that they’re more than conquerors and no amount of troubles can separate them from your love. In your precious name we pray, Jesus. Amen and thank God.

1 John 5:4

“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.”
