There are so many times in life when we feel totally overwhelmed, all stressed out and completely exhausted and unappreciated. We feel as though we are tumbling down a hole at break-neck speed and we’re carrying everyone’s luggage with us, as well as our own.
These are the worst times… We are shattered, broken and feel totally inadequate and unappreciated. Life, it seems, is completely hopeless.
But it’s not. It never is. For we serve the most mighty God. He’s a loving God, a God who is with us wherever we go. He is there in times of trouble and He will neither fail you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:8)
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Be still in knowing that the Lord will guide you. The Lord loves and appreciates you when nobody else seems to, and he is a powerful and almighty God. He gives and gives and cares and cares, even when we don’t acknowledge him.
Praise our mighty Father and give thanks, for he is always there.
And the Lord , He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8
Prayer When Feeling Appreciated
Heavenly Father, I come to you today feeling discouraged and unappreciated. I have been working hard and putting in effort, but it seems that no one notices or appreciates my efforts. I know that my worth and value do not come from what others think of me, but from the fact that I am your child and You love me.
Please, help me to remember that my identity is in You and not in what others think of me. Give me the strength to persevere and to continue to serve and do my best, even when it seems that no one notices. Remind me that my efforts are not in vain and that you see everything I do.
I trust in your plan for my life and I pray that you would use my gifts and talents for your glory. Help me to focus on you and not on the opinions of others. In the precious name of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.”
Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Prayer To Overcome
Heavenly Father, in the all-powerful and Mighty name of Jesus, fill me with your Holy Spirit. Remove that feeling of being unappreciated and ignored. Take away that consuming anger and bitter hurt. Dispel all forms of resentment and negativity.
Do not let my enemies even think they have won. O Lord, you give me victory over my enemies and protect me from violent people. You save me from my foes.
I need your everlasting peace. I cannot do this without You. May Your name forever be praised, because You alone deserve all the praise. Amen.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
