Women Connect ~ short weekly posts to inspire and encourage.
A prayer for us today from Emily P Freeman
There isn’t a road, highway, or footpath in the world you can travel without Him – – –
Unbound by time or place or gravity, You move with me and I with You.
You go ahead of me into an unknown future.
You walk toward me with love in Your eyes.
You stand beside me when I find myself in unsure places.
You sit next to me in silence and in joy.
You watch behind me to protect my mind from regret.
You live within me and lead from a quiet place.
When You speak with gentleness, may I not ignore You.
When You direct with nudges, may I move with ease.
When You declare Your love for me, may I refuse to squirm away.
When you offer good gifts, may I receive them with gratitude.
When You delay the answers, may I wait with hope.
I resist the urge to sprint ahead in a hurry or lag behind in fear.
Let me keep company with You at a walking pace, moving forward together one step at a time.
You are for me. You are with me. You are within me.
O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
You understand my thought from afar.
You scrutinize my path and my lying down,
And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
And this post which follows along well I think:
Six Features of King David’s Prayers: How to Pray When You Don’t Feel Like It by Jade Mazarin. “This is true maturity of faith – expecting that God will work despite what we’ve seen yet.”
