Lord, there seem to be too many things to pray about. Tragedies in my country, concerns in the lives of my family and friends, new life, old worries. Please help me to not grow weary in prayer. Please help me to not grow weary in putting my hands and feet to those prayers. Please help me to hear your voice, and act in your strength. I am grateful that you are never surprised and always able.
“Don’t you know anything? Haven’t you been listening? God doesn’t come and go. God lasts. He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath. And he knows everything, inside and out. He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.”
