Hear Our Prayer...

Merciful God, You alone understand our heart's cry.  You know the fears and doubts we face, and You send us JOY and mercy in the midnight hour.  You don't fault us for crying or struggling with life's challenges.  You are our Refuge and our Strength.

Thank You, dear Father, for knowing the yearning of our hearts altogether... every sigh You have noted, every teardrop You have saved, and Your arms are outstretched continually toward us to comfort and anoint us with Your Counsel.  You honor and receive our contrition. You alone are God.

God of All Comfort, hear our prayer in the night silences, and secure us in Your steadfast, unfailing Love.  Teach our minds to cleave to Your Wisdom, and our hearts to Your forgiveness.  As You forgive and heal us, please enable us to forgive and release others from the bondage of our offense.

We love You and we dash ourselves upon You for restoration and recovery.  As we soak Your strong shoulders with our tears, enable our feeble bodies to receive Your refreshing and our spirits to be fortified with Your TRUTH.  Replace our need with all of Yourself; for we believe Your ears are open to our cry, and our petitions are heard through Your everlasting faithfulness.

We receive Your conviction, correction, strength, and pardon. We welcome Your hand of instruction and bask in the Light of Your "New Beginnings" showered down upon us in the glory of our eternal inheritance through Christ Jesus.  Thank You, Daddy.

In Jesus' Name, so says my soul... AMEN.
