Prayer: Standing Still in the Storm

Dear God,

Can I be honest with You? This faith stuff is for the birds.  We throw around that word as if it is so incredibly easy, but You and I both know that it’s not.  Faith requires us to lose ourselves in You and give up what makes sense.

Lord, I’m suffering in this moment.  I want things to go my way, but You told me to wait for You.  How do I stand still in this storm? I can’t even see through the wind and rain.  How can I find peace when I just want to run away from what’s around me?

I’ve never had to trust You more than I do in this situation.  I’m praying for a miracle that only You can give. I’m praying for a renewed spirit of faith that only You can provide. Consume me, God, and carry me through this storm.

Show me what it looks like to have that unshakable faith – the type of faith that won’t be moved when the winds are calling for me.  I’m searching for the faith that will wait for You to move before I do.  Show me how to endure. That’s the only way I can continue on.

Push me past my fears.  Remind me that You are Greater than anything that comes my way, and give me the firm foundation upon which to place my feet.  I’m desperate for You to whisper through this noise so that I know You’re still here with me.

Amen Signature
