God of Strength,
I am not handling all that I am facing very well at the moment. I feel there is too much to be done and too little of me to do it. I feel like an excessive burden is always on my shoulders. There is so much to be done and I can’t seem to accomplish much of anything.
So, I pray that You help me look at things realistically and remove the tasks that aren’t important. Help me to simplify. I also pray that You give me a spirit willing to accept challenges and work hard to meet them. If I don’t have a proper work ethic, please reveal that to me and give me determination and resolve. If I am procrastinating in some way, please show me that and help me to order my days and prioritize. Also, I ask you to strengthen me in every area of my life, so that tasks don’t feel so heavy and simply aren’t as hard.
Most of all, Lord, I pray that You will be my helper. I pray that You would make me aware that every task is done in Your presence. Help me understand that You will not allow more to come into my life than I can handle.
I pray these things in the strong name of Jesus,
Psalm 61: 1-4 “Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower for the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.”
