“Deeply hurt, Hannah prayed to the Lord and wept with many tears.”
Heavenly Father, thank You for Hannah and the lovely lessons we can learn from the painful episode she underwent in her life – so that her trust in You could be ignited and her faith in God could be strengthened. Teach me to pray aright and help me to hand over every circumstance in life to You, knowing that Your way is best, and Your will is perfect. Increase my faith I pray, and should I ever become careless in my prayer-life, bring me to that point of desperation – for You alone have the words of life. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
Source: Verse of the
day for 1 Samuel 1:10
O God, I come to You filled with hurt and sadness and even anger because of my great loss. Lord I know that You have a plan for each of our lives – but I am in such pain and grief that it is hard to focus on the truth that You do care and that You have had to face deep grief and loss too. Lord my hurt and pain runs deep and I feel that my heart is breaking – I ask you to touch my hurting heart.
I know Lord that You are the God of comfort and that You have been with me every step of the way and ask You to draw ever closer to me at this time for I feel that my whole world has been shattered.
I find it hard when people who don’t understand try to say words that they think are comforting but sometimes it makes the hurt even worse and I feel hurt and so very, very alone.
Lord I know it is true that in time the pain will lessen but please be with me – hold me close and stead me, for I know that without You I could not face another day – another hour.
I keep thinking about that song we used to sing when I was younger,
never a heartache, and never a groan, never a teardrop, and never a moan, ever a danger but there on the throne, moment by moment He thinks of His own.
Hold me Lord I pray, and keep me moment by moment…
Moment by moment I am kept in Your love,
Moment by moment I’ve life from above,
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine
Thank You Lord that You are my God,
