Prayer To Stay Close To The Lord

Prayer To Stay Close To The Lord


A little girl, named Mary, was in bed one night preparing for lights-outs. Prayers had been said and Mom had hugged her. Perhaps in an effort to put off sleep-time, Mary asked her mother why God created night-time. “Why didn’t he make it daytime all the time?”

Her mother mumbled something about how it’s easier to sleep in the dark, and we all need rest. But Mary interrupted her saying, “Oh, I know why it gets dark at night; that’s when God puts the world into his pocket!”

Staying Close To The Lord

Psalms‬ ‭32:8-9‬ ‭TPT‬‬ reads“I hear the Lord saying, “I will stay close to you, instructing and guiding you along the pathway for your life. I will advise you along the way and lead you forth with my eyes as your guide. So don’t make it difficult; don’t be stubborn when I take you where you’ve not been before. Don’t make me tug you and pull you along. Just come with me!””

Our God is right here with us, even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic mayhem. Jesus, the one who sweated drops of blood, who was falsely convicted and murdered, knows a thing or two about anxiety.

He understands the way we feel about our empty cupboards and dwindling bank accounts.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:4-7).

We are to present everything and every situation to Him in prayer. Rejoice always. Don’t be downtrodden or allow circumstances to get you depressed.

The Lord is near. So why are you so anxious? Allow the peace of God to cover you and guard your heart. Spend time with God by meditating on His Word.

Let Us Pray To Stay Close To The Lord

Heavenly Father, I give thanks and praise to your holy name. You are worthy of all praise. You are my strength, my peace, my joy.

Day or night, we can relax in your tranquility. Hold us as we find peace and safety within You.

Reveal clarity and calmness within us as we thread the raging waters. Only perfect gifts come from above, from you, the light of the world.

Teach us to be patient as You replace what is lost with greater opportunities. There may be pain in the night but joy always comes in the morning.

Give me the strength to look beyond the present disappointments. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
