So tired

Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens (Matthew 11:28; NLT).

I am too distressed even to pray (Psalm 77:4; NLT).

The Spirit… intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words (Romans 8:26; NRSV).


Lord,
People are suffering all around me,
But I’m so tired and burdened
That I can’t even pray.

So, may your Holy Spirit
Intercede for them on my behalf,
With sighs too deep for words,

While I wait patiently on you,
In stillness,
And in silence.

Prayer

Like God

Put on your new nature, created to be like God – truly righteous and holy (Ephesians 4:24; NLT).

Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do (Ephesians 5:1; NLT).

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ (Ephesians 5:2; NLT).

The Holy Spirit… lives within us (2 Timothy 1:14; NLT). 


Father,
I know this sounds ridiculous,
But you created me
To be like you.

Please help me
To follow your Son’s example
In everything I think,
And say, and do,

Living a life of love
Through the power
Of your Holy Spirit,
Who dwells within me.

Living in God

There is… one God and Father, who is over all in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us (Colossians 3:11; NLT).

Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you – guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us (2 Timothy 1:14; NIV).

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

 

Lord,
You live in me,
And through me.

Please help me
To remember your presence
Constantly,

Living in love,
So I may
Live in you.
