Daily Prayer, Compassion and Comfort

Compassion and Comfort

Our God is the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. So it is right and just that we would pray to Him seeking those things. Not just for ourselves, but also for others. Just as all believers share in Christ’s suffering, we also share in His great comfort. Are you in need? Don’t forget to pray for someone else facing the same situation. Lift them in prayer and take comfort as God transforms both of your lives! Then rejoice and praise Him together.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)

at His feet Daily Prayer

Lord, You are my comfort, my strength and my defender. Hear my plea to You. You know my situation and my need. As I pour out my heart to You, help me remember my brothers and sisters around the world who are also in need of Your comfort. Bring to mind my friends, family, neighbors–everyone who You would have me pray for. Equip me to move beyond myself and my needs and remember the needs and sufferings of others. Lord, would You use my current trial to bring mature faith, selfless love, and total trust in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Daily Prayer~A Crown of Beauty/No More Ashes

The Love of Jesus

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
