Almighty God the everlasting Father, we come before Your presence this morning, Lord we are in need of you. We need your strength and your fresh touch to get back on track again, some of us as lost that first love and joy we once have in you. Your Word says the joy of the Lord is our strength.
The pressures of life sometimes push us into a corner, rendering us helpless to move forward, not knowing where to turn. Lord, help us not to quit, especially with what is going on around us, help us to keep running the race faithfully, and to find strength in that safe, secret place of yours, under the shadow of the Almighty.
We need your strength to say no when I’m tempted to surrender to harmful things. We need your strength to say yes, when cowardice and fear nudge us to deny the convictions of our heart. We need your strength to reach out in love to those both close to us and all around us.
You are our rock, you are our shield and we can run to you today, believing that you will lift up our heavy arms, that you will fuel us for the tasks you’ve given unto us, and that your joy will completely consume the weakness of our lives and make us strong again. We don’t want to stay grounded, crippled by limitations and failed attempts. We are tired of feeble efforts. Lord, we want to mount up with wings like an eagle and fly. We want to soar. Renew our strength, Lord. Fill us with your supernatural power to overcome each obstacle in our path. With our eyes on you, Lord, with you walking beside us working through us, we can make it. Thank you, Lord!
