Praying for Strength

Ten K
Lansing, Michigan, 1983

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Almighty and Merciful Father,

For the strength you give us, the healing you lavish on us, and the shelter you offer us from many storms, we give you glory and honor.

We confess that we are weak, sin-sick, and blind to many fiascos of our own making.

But we thank you for your healing presence day and night. We thank you for modeling strength in the midst of chaos and wisdom in the midst of all foolishness. In the power of your Holy Spirit, grant us strength for the day, grace for those we meet, and peace that our hearts would never be troubled.

In Jesus’s precious name, Amen.
