Thank You for another day! Thank You for my life and the purpose You have given me. I come before You tired and ask for a refreshed spirit. I am exhausted and I need Your strength to carry me.
Fill me with joy, so that no matter how tired I am, I rejoice because You are good and Your love endures forever. I pray for other wives who are feeling tired or empty. Help us not to complain amidst our weakness. Restore our minds so that we can still function properly. Give our bodies the energy needed to get through each day.
We claim healing in Jesus’ name! Please also help us to manage our time so that we will get the rest we need. Help us to prune things that are hard to let go of that suck the energy from us. Lord, we lay our lives down at Your throne and praise You in Jesus’ name AMEN!
...but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31
Living is full of doing. It begins with learning to take responsibility for ourselves and escalates into limitless opportunities to nurture, guide, and serve others. The ways in which we can pour ourselves out are endless.
Yet our earthly abilities are finite.
There are physical and spiritual limits on how long and how much we can expend and still be walking in the light from a center of love.
As Christians, the temptation to over-function is pervasive. Guilt, people-pleasing, pride, and a host of other illusions have their insidious way with us. As it says in 2 Corinthians 11:14, “…no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”
Despite this life that so many of us are pseudo-controlling like crazy to our own demise, God has a better plan. A promised land, in fact, where we will enter a fulfilling time of purposeful, active living called God’s rest.
God doesn’t need us to burn out. He desires that we believe. In this article we’ll explore a few examples of a prayer for energy, so you can go to him when you feel stressed and burnt out.
