Friday’s Prayer: Keep on!
So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.” And, “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.” Hebrews 10:35-38
Lord Jesus, as this week grows long and I enter this final day of the week, I’m getting tired and worn out. My nerves are frazzled. My self-control grows week. I find myself getting frustrated at the drop of a dime. My patience is worn thin. I feel that way sometimes with my faith and living it out. I know that I should be in your word. I know that I should be spending time in God’s Word with my family. I know that I should be coming to church. I know all these good things that I should be doing. I know, Lord. But I get so tired. I get home at the end of the day and I don’t have it in me to do these things. Help me! Strengthen me. Give me your strength and perseverance to hold tightly to my confidence and to persevere in it. You are coming for me and for all who believe in you, dear Jesus. Give me strength to continue on and to persevere in my faith until you return from the skies. This weekend, give me strength to get up on Sunday and to worship with my fellow believers. Give me discipline to be in your Word every day. Lord God, I can’t do this if you don’t give me the strength. I won’t make it if you don’t help. So, Lord, help! O Lord, save! Amen.
