Prayer Journey — Long Road

The road in this life is filled with twists and turns. I’ve made wrong turns and ended up at dead ends. Some days the traveling is rough, full of bumps and ruts. Other days I’m stuck and unable to move. But you dear Lord — you call me, direct me, guide me; carefully pulling me out of the mud and mire where I’m stuck. You meet me at the dead ends and gently guide me back along the way, your way. You teach me how to manage the ruts and washouts — to avoid getting diverted from Your path. When I am weary from the journey, you encourage me to press on. I have traveled far with you dear God. There is no one like you. I long for your presence. As I grip the steering wheel of life, stare at the long road ahead with discouragement, you remind me that you have prepared a place for me; a place to rest. Give me the strength, the tenacity to complete this journey according to your will dear God.

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. – John 14:1-3

  1. Thanks for sharing those thoughts. I like the idea of praying for God’s boundaries to keep us on track. May God give us wisdom to see and hear his direction for our life. Blessings.

  2. On my personal journey I’ve found encountered the enemy’s roadblocks (things I can’t even see, much less get through), barriers (where I can see where I want to go but can’t get there), obstacles (things in the path that take time and effort to remove and slow me down), and smokescreens (where I can’t see where I’m going). But I pray that God will exchange them for (or transform them into) His boundaries, His guardrails, His speedbumps, and His directions. Life is full of surprises, but how boring would it be without them? 😉
