Lord, we come to You for the men and women in our military. We know that their fight against the darkness brings them face-to-face with it. So we pray for them, Lord, that they would always be able to see Your light. Keep their eyes open to You.
We pray, too, for those whose way is like deep darkness, who do not know what makes them stumble. Lord Jesus, You came into this world as a light, so that no one who believes You should stay in darkness. We ask You, then, to draw many more souls into the light.
Father, we know and believe that as You have guided our hearts to You, so You will guide our paths to You. When we feel lost, when confusion and anxiety are great within us it is You who know our way. You make the path of the righteous like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till You bring us into the full light of day. We thank You the Shepherd who guides us, the God who is leading us home in the Name of Jesus our Lord, Amen.
Come and pray.
Praying with you for our Heroes and our beloved Nation.
Amen to your Beautiful prayer for the Spiritual and Emotional Health of Our American heroes!
Beautiful prayer. Amen!
The people of Israel were struggling. They had been taken captive by the Babylonians and forced to live in a country far from home. What could the prophet Isaiah give these weary people to help them?
He gave them a prophecy of hope. It was a message from God relating to the promised Messiah. In Isaiah 50:4, the Savior Himself described the comfort and consolation He would one day bring: The Lord God has given Me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary.
These were words of dual comfortboth to the people in exile and to future generations whose lives would be touched by Jesus compassion. In the Gospels we see how Christ fulfilled the prophecy with a word in season to him who is weary. To the crowds who followed Him, Christ proclaimed: Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matt. 11:28). Words of compassion indeed!
Jesus left us an example of how to minister to people who have grown weary. Do you know someone who needs a timely word of encouragement or the listening ear of a concerned friend? A word of comfort to the weary can go a long way.
Read: Isaiah 50:4-10
