My Prayer

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.  Isaiah 42:16

Father,
I pray your peace and calm into my life – may I be able to breathe you in, like a deep breath and to sense your nearness, your presence.  Come Holy Spirit – come into my life and into life’s situations that overwhelm me.  May I sense your presence and your power.

Lord, help me to invite you in to my situation every morning; may I gain insight and rest in you and in knowing that you are enough.  You can do the impossible.  May I see that my faith activates your power to move, to work and to rearrange.  Sometimes when it seems that all is lost and forsaken, it is actually you rearranging and resituating things to set them aright.  Lord, open my eyes to see life from your perspective.  In Isaiah 42:16, you say that you will lead the blind by ways they have not known.  Increase my faith, Lord, to be able to see you working in ways that I have not seen before.  Thank you Lord.  Amen.
