In this day and age, it is so easy to get caught up in our daily lives. We go to work, run errands, and handle all sorts of responsibilities we have. We sometimes do not have time to catch our breath because society has romanticized the notion of self-reliance and the “grind.” It’s admirable if we are “Wonder Woman” or “Superman” and do not rely on anyone.
However, this constant pressure makes it easy to forget to pause and talk to God– to ask for His help to go about our day. We often get caught up in juggling things and handling everything by ourselves and don’t rely on God. No wonder we’re so exhausted and are sometimes lost and confused when our responsibilities pile up. (Read: 7 Things to Do to Achieve 7 Types of Rest)
Let us remember that we need God. If you have been carrying life’s burdens on your own and have forgotten to call God for help, here are prayers to call for him. Our God is a loving and merciful God who gives us a hand when life gets too burdensome.
A Prayer for God’s Help
I pray over my circumstances right now. I pray you will give me peace about what I can’t change and the wisdom to change the things I can. I’m asking you to reach into my life and do your will. Guide me and give me the discernment to hear your voice. Help me to overcome these adversities and have victory in you on the other side. I thank you for the plans you have for me and give you the praise and glory, even in this current storm. In your name, I pray. Amen.
