When I am in Pain

Heavenly Father I look forward to the day when I will feel no more pain. I praise You that this life is but a vapor and we must run our race and then endure until the end. I praise You for creating us with a purpose and with hope and the strength to complete our purpose. I praise You for fully understanding us and that Christ who endured the cross is our advocate. 

Holy Spirit You inspired the author of Hebrews to write, “lift up your tired hands, and strengthen your weak knees. Make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame go out of joint, but rather be healed. Pursue peace with all men, and the holiness without which no one will see the Lord, watching diligently so that no one falls short of the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness spring up to cause trouble, and many become defiled by it.” Since I have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for me through the curtain, that is, his body, and since I have a great priest over the house of God, let me draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having my heart sprinkled to cleanse me from a guilty conscience and having my body washed with pure water. Let me hold unswervingly to the hope I profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let all of us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. [Hebrews 12:14-15, Hebrews 10:19-25]

Holy Spirit I come and petition for healing of my knee and my L5 in my back. Help me to walk again with little to no pain. Help me to endure this little set back and be able to focus on prayer since I have so many depending upon the prayers I and others are bringing to Your throne room. 

The end of all things is near. Therefore, be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:7-11 pi
