Father, I have stopped asking for miracles.
My wounded heart has lost the faith it once had for hoping You might step in and make something out of nothing.
I still believe in YOU. I still hope in YOU.
BUT I am resigned to a life of waiting to see redemption and restoration in Heaven, not here.
In the waiting I ask only two things: Mercy and grace.
Please, please show me mercy, Lord.
Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me, For I am distressed and needy [I long for Your help].
Psalm 86:1 AMP
Please spare me even greater pain and sorrow. Please don’t pile more burdens on my broken back-I don’t think I can make another step if You do.
And I beg You to overwhelm my hurting heart with Your grace.
He said to me, “My grace is enough to cover and sustain you. My power is made perfect in weakness.” So ask me about my thorn, inquire about my weaknesses, and I will gladly go on and on—I would rather stake my claim in these and have the power of the Anointed One at home within me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 VOICE
Let me feel your Presence, let my spirit be strengthened by your Spirit, give me grace to accept what You’ve allowed and the strength to carry it.
