Omnipotent, Omnipresent Father, I am weary, weak, tired, and drained. You are my strength, my motivation, my energy! Life is throwing its toughest battles at me at this very moment.
But I will survive, for You are my strength when I am weak. You are my rock on which I stand firm on solid ground.
Oh Gracious and Merciful Father, You raise me up to stand on the highest mountains and to walk on those stormy seas. Give me the strength enough for today that I will overcome. Empower me with all that I need to really push through today.
Every stronghold is broken. I speak prosperity and positivity into my life, for life and death are in the power of the tongue. In Jesus’ mighty and powerful name I pray, 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.
