Prayer

Life

“They suffer painfully; their life is full of trouble” (Job 14:22; NLT).

I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me (Psalm 16:8; 8; NLT).

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10; NLT).


Father,
Life is hard,
So we look for ways
Of trying to avoid
Our suffering –

Over-eating,
Smoking,
Alcohol,
And drugs;

Mindless entertainment,
Endless acquisition,
Pornography,
And promiscuity –
An endless list.

But, Lord,
If only we would face
Our challenges with you,
We could reduce
Our desperate need
For all these soul-destroying things,
And have life to the full –
No matter what it brings.
