Today’s prayer can be said repeatedly both before, and whilst, facing any task we find hard.
A child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called: Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
(Isaiah 9:6; NLT).
You care for me each day.
Mighty God and King,
You hear me when I pray.
Grant me what I ask:
Prince of Peace, my Lord,
Please help me face this task.
1. He cares for those who trust in him (Nahum 1:7; NIV).
2. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us (1 John 5:14; NIV).
3. Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for (Matthew 7:7; NLT).
Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours (Mark 11:24; NIV).
4. “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed (John 20:28; NLT).
Come quickly to help me, O Lord, my saviour (Psalm 38:22; NLT).
He helps me (Psalm 28:7; NLT).
