Prayer Journey — My Soul Weeps

I dig deep in my soul. I think your ways are my ways; your desires my desires. And yet I can feel distant from you God, not understanding why some things need to be the way they are — why the pain and suffering. It seems so unnecessary. I only desire for them to be free from being enslaved to the lies, to the deceit; free from the sin that only brings misery. I only want them to bask in the joy of your light dear Jesus. Isn’t this also your desire dear God? So much pain, at times it seems unbearable. My heart aches, my soul weeps. I cry out to you God in prayer for change. Help me to grab hold of your wisdom and truth, even in the midst of my doubt. Help me to trust in you.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. – Psalm 46:1-3

  1. Such good insight. It is so true that we cannot choose for them. We can only live out our faith, let Jesus continue to shape us and move us, and perhaps they will accept Christ as well. Thanks for the comment. Blessings.

  2. We stand with you in those tears. There is a heart ache that happens when we see others bound by ‘self’, unwilling and unable to resist it’s siren song. As those that pursue ‘self’ and intentional distance themselves from Jesus it is heartbreaking. Yet we cannot choose for them and must respect their decision for loneliness, isolation and finally destruction. This is hard to bear but bear we must for there is grave consequences for violating another’s will. May we, instead, be a conduit of His light and love to those around us. Let them see lJesus being formed in us and, if they choose, they too can enter into the fullness of intimacy with God.

    Blessings,
