My Monday Prayer: He’s Always There
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley
He's Always There
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you. Psalm 55:22 NKJV
We can be thankful Jesus is “always there”—there in our need, there in our weakness, there in our struggles, there in our tears, there in our burdens.
When Jesus came, He didn’t come to seek and save those who “had it all together.” He didn’t look for those who would place few demands upon Him. He didn’t tell seekers He was a busy man and they needed to work things out for themselves.
Jesus welcomes us. He invites us to come to Him. He has assured us that when we
come to Him, He will sustain us.
My Monday Prayer
Jesus, thank You that You don't require or expect me to have it all together, or to meet qualifications to be a follower of You. I just need to believe that You are who You say You are. Jesus, the only Son of God.
Thank You that Your presence is constant, consistent, dependable. Even when I am inconsistent and my faith wavering, You sustain me. Lord, help me to believe more. Help my unbelief.
Strengthen my faith to believe that you ARE always with me, no matter how my day is going, how things look around me, whatever the news reports say. You are aware of it all, and You love me no matter what is going on in the world. Give me the childlike faith I need to pray challenging prayers—prayers that will grow my faith. Help me to trust that You have it all in control. You are aware of what is going on, and I do not need to worry about it or try to control it. I do not need to complain about it, or gossip about it. You know the truth of every situation, every detail, every outcome. I can rest in You today, trusting You to resolve all the injustice in my circumstances, my neighborhood, in the world. In Your name I ask these things, Jesus. Amen.
