Prayer for Proverbs 29 ►
Lord Jesus I know that You are close to those that are broken-hearted and grieving in their soul and that You rescue those that are crushed in spirit. Draw near to Your many children who are facing times of sadness and loss and draw each one ever closer into Your precious arms of love and support.
Thank You that You are wonderfully good to all who wait for You and seek You, and I pray that those of my brothers and sisters in Christ who, – for whatever reason – are facing times of grief and hardship in their lives - that in Your grace and mercy You would draw very close to each one and gently carry them on Your shoulders, as a Shepherd carries a little lamb that has been torn by the briars.
Be close to all that are grieving today I pray, and flood their souls with hope – knowing that underneath are Your everlasting arms.
Give me a heart that is sensitive to those that are grieving, the wisdom to know when to speak words of comfort or when to keep silent. And Lord I also pray that You would use my life to be a channel of encouragement and hope, through whom the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ will flow into their hearts – to heal and help.
Thank You Lord that You are a God that answers prayers.
“Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.”

Thank YOU Lord, for Your Word which has so many beautiful truths and wonderful promises …that You are always there to help when times are hard – and thank You for this scripture from the Bible, which someone gave me today: do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Thank You for this lovely truth and for the many promises that You have given to all Your children. May my heart rest in You Lord and keep me from fear in these difficult times, in Jesus name I pray,
