A PRAYER FOR HELP
Father God, today we come to you asking for help. You are the Creator, and the God of the universe, and still, you pay attention to every aspect of our lives down to the smallest detail. So, in humility, we simply ask for help.
Many in our community are feeling overwhelmed, burdened by financial stresses, worried about the future, or just tired. We know that you are present with us in the good and the tough times, so we lift our eyes up to you now.
We ask that you would mobilize practical help today. From meals to cleaning to yard work, please send people to lend a helping hand with the physical things that our community needs.
We ask that you would send financial provision. We know of so many stories where provision came from the most unexpected places. Help us to hope for and trust in provision from you.
We ask that you would send a listening ear. Sometimes the most helpful act is the presence of a good friend that’s just ready to sit with us and hear what we’re going through.
We ask that you would send helpful advice. You provide wisdom through your Word, friends, doctors, and nurses, so we ask for clarity and help in navigating decisions.
We ask that you would encourage hearts. Our greatest help is in you. Help us to remember the things that Jesus endured so that he could empathise with our circumstances. Make us aware of your presence with us.
We know that we are not meant to walk through our circumstances alone, but sometimes it can be a lonely place when we feel like we need help. We also ask that you would give our community the courage to ask for help from family, friends, and coworkers when they need it.
We declare that your promises are good. Even as we pray for help, give us the courage to choose hope and open our hearts to trust you more deeply. We love you. Amen.
