A Prayer for the Discouraged

A Prayer for the Discouraged

Every leader faces times when things don't go the way they planned. Times when troubles come fast and furious, when no choice seems like a good choice. In times such as these, we have the example of men and women of faith who turned to God for help. God never intended for us to face difficulties in our own strength. He wants us to depend on Him. The Psalms help us give voice to our need.

Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish.—Psalm 25:16-17

Prayer: Lord, I cry out to You in David's words, asking You to turn to me and be gracious to me. Ease my heart, release me from the burden of trying to carry my stresses alone. I look for You, I hunger for Your voice, I long for Your touch, I need You to intervene. I give You the praise for what You are going to do, in Jesus' name, Amen.
