Holy and Wonderful Lord, May Your will be done.. Please help me to love and forgive while maintaining appropriate boundaries needed to protect from further abuse. I struggle, Lord on how to maintain safe boundaries and loving forgiveness, as You well know. Help me to maintain what I know must be kept in place with people in family that I would like to have relationship with, but continue to prove to be untrustworthy. These relationships over the years have become too toxic to continue to be engaged in. You are a God Who sees, Who hears. Show me loving ways to, in Your grace, love and in discerning wisdom navigate and properly maintain safty. Thank You, Father for being my very present Help in this time of pain and brokenness. My mind knows what I need to do, but my heart aches with the boundary decisions that must be made. I cast out, in Jesus any spirit of addiction in family,
as well as the spirit of supporting the lying,stealing and manipulation that comes with this. Thank You, Father for Your help and that all things work for good to those who love You according to Your plans.
I know You are the Wonderful Counselor and Your Ways are higher than mine. I will release these to You, dearest Lord. Help me to be strong and listen for Your Voice in this difficult situation.
I look forward to seeing Your glory in the land of the living. Holy Spirit move this mountain.
Also, as I see similar brokenness across this nation, I pray for families and those who need Your touch and help. Help our Land heal, Lord. Forgive me for any of my part in adding to the desperate circumstances we, as a people find ourselves today. Help me to be a continued voice for You in loving truth and grace, in spite of the cost.
Thank You, for showing us mercy, dearest Lord and King for showing me mercy.
In Him Who reigns over all.
Thank you, for praying in agreement with me. I have a church family, but have not truly been able to have this kind of prayer support. I am in a leadership role and find that everyone is stretched so thin that there is no real time or energy to connect in a way to truly share intimate fellowship in these areas of our lives. Our church has tripled since the pandemic. The harvest is great but workers are few. As a whole, the Church is doing much ‘work’ in the community, surrounding communities, abroad and in other states to provide needs. Baprisms and professions of faith are ramping up,, but wr are struggling in the area of true discipleship of the flock. The leadership appears on the outside to be doing a good job,, due to all the works.. However, the individual discipleship of the flock is extremely difficult and challenging.
I have no doubt that this has been and is the Church, as a whole problem across this nation and in the world. May our Lord Who equips and does the impossible cover us all with His supernatural strength and endurance, as our time of redemption draws near.
I pray this for you all, as well. I know the challenge of your ministry. May our Lord richly bless you, dear Sisters and Brothers.
