Daily Prayer~A Crown of Beauty/No More Ashes

A Crown of Beauty for Ashes

Are you mourning? Hurting? Feeling lonely or in despair? Please lift your head and know that God sees your pain, and He cares. He wants to bring you comfort, joy out of suffering, blessings from brokenness, and He will give you a crown of beauty for your ashes. I don’t know how or when, but hang on beloved, He is near and He hears your prayer. Cry out to Him and rejoice when He answers. He is with you and you are not alone.

To all who mourn in Israel, He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory. (Isaiah 61:3)

at His feet Daily Prayer

Lord, please hear my cry, my plea for mercy. I am weary and I need Your healing presence. Transform me into something new, create something beautiful from my brokenness, and use me to share Your love with others. Shield me from my enemies, and light my path with Your holy Word. You know exactly what I need, and I know in Your timing, You will provide. Until then, I also know You will hold me close and never leave my side. Help me feel Your presence every moment and strengthen my faith that I would stand firm. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Time in the Word: Isaiah 61

I would love to pray for you or connect with you. Please leave a comment with a prayer request (or just your name, God knows your need!). It would be my honor and delight to lift you in prayer.

If you enjoy these prayers and are blessed, please share them! You can also find Faith to Soar on facebook, twitter, or pinterest and I hope you will join me online in following Jesus wherever He leads!

Be blessed,

  1. Hi Marc: Pray for an unsaved mebemr of my family. God can and does work miracles and that is what I am praying for this season, that God will touch his heart. I am and will contnue to pray for you and your family as you await Gd’s direction where he wants you to minister. Of course, I am hoping it is in Florida because I miss you guys so much.

    1. Hi, I am happy to join you in prayer for your unsaved family member. We all have someone we are lifting in prayer for salvation and joining one another in prayer for that is powerful! I don’t know Marc though and you may have the wrong blog maybe, like a wrong number, LOL. Indirectly, though, I’m grateful for the same prayer! Blessings!
