Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for always loving me, always forgiving me when I repent of my sins, and always holding me in the palm of Your hand. I thank You that you are working in my life even when I can’t feel it or see it.
I come to You in one of those moments where I am struggling emotionally and mentally. Lord, I feel discouraged, depressed, and do not feel Your presence. Thank You for being a Father Who gives me the freedom to acknowledge how I am feeling without fear of Your criticism. I am hurting Lord and I am not sure what to do so I come to You and lay myself before You and ask You to please touch me, heal me, let me sense Your presence in my life. I pray for divine appointments that would bring encouragement and clarity. I pray that the gloom that I am feeling will be replaced by Your peace that passes all understanding. I pray that opportunities for great joy and personal ministry would enter my day and that I will be sensitive to those times that I won’t miss them.
Oh Lord, I need the sense of Your presence; I need to experience Your joy afresh and anew; I need a fresh touch from You. I know by faith that You are all around me, but I pray for a new encounter with You where I feel Your presence. I know I cannot live by feelings, but I ask You to please touch how I feel. Help me to daily put on the garment of praise for my spirit of heaviness.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
