REVIVE MY SPIRIT
It is not uncommon in life to get tired and worn down, particularly if you are busy or have various pressures upon you from areas in life such as relationships, finances, health, children, etc.
So often it is not just problems that wear us out but even success and the daily grind of doing what life demands.
I know this feeling all too well. It is often at times like these that I struggle to pray or even have an awareness of the presence of God in my life.
The only way that I have learnt to lift myself above these things is to seek after God. The challenge however is that even this can be difficult. It is times like these that I have learnt to pray a simple prayer, “Lord help me to pray.” So often this all I find that I am able to say to God.
Over and over I have found if I just pray to God these simple words and really mean them then God’s presence does eventually find me and revive me. It could take a few days or even a few weeks but I always find in the end that peace that only comes from God.
The writer of Psalm 69:32 is very true when they write;
Let the oppressed see it and be glad;
you who seek God, let your hearts revive.
Thank you that you hear my smallest prayers and you never let me down. You always come. You always revive my life.
Father thank you and we make this prayer in Jesus name through the power of the Holy Spirit.
