Words of Endurance
A Note of Encouragement
I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
EXODUS 16:4-5 (NIV)
God wants us to come to Him, even with fumbling words and an unsure heart. He’s given us the cries, the prayers of others in the Bible and his Son’s guiding words on prayer to help us when prayer becomes difficult – as He knew it would.
How greatly He desires that we come to Him. How much He longs to be a Father to His children – especially when they are hurting.
If you are struggling with prayer, ask God for help! We have no power to maintain our spiritual life on our own. We need God’s help … even to pray. And it’s okay to ask Him for help.
The Lord is my strength and shield.
I trust Him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
PSALM 28:7 (NLT)
On the journey with you,
